They defeated St. John first by a score of 8-0. In their next match they were victorious over Sterling, again with the score being 8-0. They completed the sweep, with an 8-0 win over an Ellinwood, a team who placed ninth at state last year.
Number one singles player Kaylyn Oberle also had a successful day, placing second. She beat St. John and Lyons with the score being 8-2 in each match. She then downed a quality Ellinwood competitor 8-1, before falling 8-2 to a Sterling player that finished fifth at state a year ago.
