Congratulations to our Varsity Tennis Team for competing tirelessly at the Regional Tennis Tournament on Friday in Broomfield. Our #1 doubles team of Darby Kelley and Ali Leen will go on to compete in States this weekend in Greeley.


1. #1 singles, Sarah Emmanuel-played two 3-set matches with a broken toe!  Unfortunately she lost to Lutheran in a close 3 set match, but defeated Englewood in another 3 set match to take 3rd in Regionals!
2. #2 singles, Katherine Crise-lost in a tight 3 set match against Lutheran.  She also won a close match against Englewood after that, and played the entire tournament with an injured back!  We are always told that smart girls go to SMA, but also incredibly tough girls!  Katherine played with grit and determination and finished 3rd in the Region!
3. #3 singles, Sarah Chvjoka-lost in a competitive match against her Lutheran opponent.  She previously had lost to that player 6-1, 6-0, but at Regionals, she lost 7-5, 6-3!  A great improvement.  Sarah went on to easily beat her Englewood opponent for a 3rd place finish in Regionals!
4. #1 doubles-beat Lutheran and then lost in tough match to Holy Family. They finished 2nd in the Region!  Please wish them luck as their season continues to the State tournament in Greeley next weekend.
5.#2 doubles, Grace Cox and Zara Antal-lost in a couple of tough matches to Lutheran and Jefferson.  They came back from a set down in the Jefferson match to win the second set and force a 3rd set! They finished 4th in the Region!
6. #3 doubles, Kandyce Sanchez and Mariangie Acosta, lost to Lutheran in a tough fought match.  They lost 6-4, 6-2, a great improvement over their last match up that was 6-0, 6-0!  They finished 3rd in the Region!
7. #4 doubles, Aarushi Gupta and Emma Stewart, lost a tough one to Lutheran as well.  After a early season head to head loss of 6-2, 6-1, they pushed Lutheran and fought to a 6-3, 7-5 loss.  They also finished 3rd in the Region!
