State College comes up short in District 6 doubles tourney
ALTOONA The Lady Little Lions couldn’t get past the quarterfinals Wednesday in the District 6 Class 3A girls’ tennis doubles championships at the Leopold Recreation Center.
The doubles pairing of Kelly Vanden and Catelyn Janac cruised past their Round of 16 match but then had to retire early in the quarterfinals due to an “acute illness.” Vanden and Janac were leading 2-1 in the third set against the No. 4 seeds of the tournament, Central Mountain’s Jolee McCluskey and Kendall McCluskey.
Never miss a local story.
State College’s Amelia Dodoo-Keya Ahrestani dropped a tough 7-6(4), 5-7, 10-4 match to Central Mountain in the Round of 16.
“Our State College teams had their challenges today,” coach Jane Borden said. “Both Central Mountain teams came ready to compete, and they did a nice job making shots and winning key points.”
The tournament continues Thursday. No local teams remain.
The Lady Little Lions will return to the court at 3:30 p.m. Monday, to face Hollidaysburg in the team district championship.
