Congratulations to 10th grader Ellie Gerlach for winning the Region 7 singles title Thursday by defeating the #2 seeded Abbie Mather from Assumption 6-4, 6-3 in the finals.  This is Ellie’s 3rd straight Region 7 singles title and 4th overall after winning the doubles title in 2007.  Ellie will now compete in the State tournament next week in Lexington, likely as the #1 seed.

Also congratulations to the Christian Academy girls varsity team for placing 2nd (out of 16 teams) in the Region 7 tournament trailing only Sacred Heart by 2 points in the final points standings.  This is the 2nd year in a row that the girls have finished 2nd in the toughest region in Kentucky.
