Roundup: Girls fall to Meadows in final tennis match

The Boulder City High School girls tennis team finished as the 3A state runner-up Friday, Oct. 19, at the Tahoe Donner Tennis Center in Truckee, California, after an 11-4 defeat by The Meadows but saw success individually Saturday, Oct. 20, as junior Olivia Mikkelson won her second consecutive state title.

“We had another amazing season,” head coach Jami Pappas said. “It was competitive tennis up in Truckee; the girls brought their A game. Unfortunately, we were not able to win this year, but I am looking forward to next year, as most of the players are returning. We gave it our all, and that’s all you can do. We will take runner-up with the goal of state champions next year.”

Falling to the Mustangs for a third time this season, the Lady Eagles (17-3) shook up their lineup at state but were still unsuccessful in their attempt to knock off the three-time defending state champions.

Moving to doubles, Mikkelson teamed with junior Sophia Morris to finish 3-0 on the day, while the duo of senior Olivia Goodfellow and junior Olivia Leavitt finished 1-2.

Finding success in the semifinals against Northern host Truckee, the Lady Eagles cruised to a 16-2 victory.

Leavitt and Morris also finished 3-0 in doubles, while senior Natalie Bowman and junior Katelyn Fox finished 2-0.

Finding success individually in Reno, Mikkelson defeated The Meadows’ Lindsey Hofflander in a rematch of last year’s final. Coming from behind for the victory, Mikkelson rebounded from dropping the first match to win 4-6, 6-1, 7-5.

In doubles play, Fox and Bowman defeated Shayna Indyg and Claire Strimling from The Meadows in the third-place match, 6-0, 6-4.
