Presley Blommers and Lucy Roach are going back to the state tennis meet as a doubles team.
Oskaloosa’s girls tennis team ventured to Fairfield yesterday for individual regionals. Jenna DeBoef and Ava Ridenour were entered as singles, while Blommers and Roach, along with Hannah Nelson and Lexi Prather, were entered as doubles teams.
Blommers and Roach entered regionals as the #1 seed in their bracket and cruised all the way through the semifinals. They faced #2 seed Davenport Assumption in the district championship match.
“This was definitely one of the best teams they had seen this year,” Indians coach Bryan Kime said after the fact.
The Blommers+Roach duo lost their first set 6-2, which featured several duce games. The second set was a closer affair, but the team fell 6-4 to finish 2nd.
The girls 2A State Tennis meet will take place on May 26-27 in Iowa City.
