Mason Girls Tennis Takes Third Straight District Title

 

The George Mason High School girls varsity tennis team won its third straight Bull Run District title on Wednesday, May 7, defeating Clarke County, its sole opposition for the crown, 6-3.

 

Junior Michelle Repper, sophomore Kelsey Kane and senior Annie Zweighaft each won their singles matches in shut-out fashion, 10-0, to split the singles portion of the match with the Eagles. With the match tied at three, the Mustangs swept their opponents in doubles play.

The top tandem of Repper and Zweighaft prevailed 10-0 at No. 1 doubles, while Kane and partner Claire Sedmak edged their opponents 10-8.

Isis Hanna teamed with Claire Pribulka at No. 3 doubles for a 10-2 win.

The win by Repper at No. 1 singles gives Mason’s top player the individual singles title for the third-straight year. Similarly her win alongside Zweighaft puts that doubles pairing into the Region B doubles tournament as the Bull Run District’s representatives.

The Mustangs now take a break from the action until May 24 with the start of the Region B Tournament.
