The George Mason High School girls varsity tennis team advanced easily over Goochland to claim the Region B title and earn a berth in the semifinals of the Virginia Group A State Tournament.
Mason’s Michelle Repper, Kelsey Kane, Annie Zweighaft, Isis Hanna and Corrina Spanu all won their singles matches to sweep past the Bulldogs, 5-0. The Region B title is the third straight for the Mason High girls varsity team.
The Mustangs now face Radford High School on Friday, June 6, at 9 a.m. A win there and the team will advance to the finals, where they will face the winner of Group A champion Matthews and Group D champion John Battle. Gate City, the reigning state champions who have defeated Mason in each of the previous two seasons, did not qualify for the tournament.
The Mason doubles tandem of Repper and Zweighaft will also compete in the semifinals of the state doubles tournament. They begin play at 3 p.m. on Friday against Group D representatives Emerald Lauzon and Carly Johnson of John Battle. Lauzon and Johnson are an undefeated 12-0 this season.
