Congratulations to Grace Jennings on a huge repeat as the Girls Kentucky State Tennis Champion!! Grace won the title as a Junior in 2015, then again over the past weekend. This years’ path to the title included quality opponents, and Grace won the first 4 matches by comfortable margins.
Then on Saturday, she demonstrated toughness, resolve, discipline and a strong competitive spirit by winning two tight matches to claim the 2016 Championship. Congrats Grace – what an accomplishment and honor – so fun to watch you play!
Coach Mallory commented “Major congratulations to Grace for winning her 2nd state championship in a row. She had a wonderful year and career….what a way to finish in your last match.”
