Kaneland’s State-going tennis duo ends 2011 campaign

By on October 27, 2011

KANELAND—It matters little that a team like Amelia Napiorkowski and Madi Jurcenko were ousted after one match at this past weekend’s State tennis gathering in District 214 territory.

It matters for the second year in a row, however that KHS tennis has had a State presence, proving that, by definition, the Lady Knights are able to produce some of the most elite talent in the State.

On Thursday at Elk Grove High School, the duo lost a 6-3, 6-0 affair to the Benet Academy tandem of Mary Beth King and Daniella Reyes.

Marika Cusick and Caroline Lorenzini, of Hinsdale Central took the State doubles crown. Jerricka Boone of Chicago’s Morgan Park Academy won the singles title.

With the ending of the State tourney, the Lady Knights bid best wishes to seniors Leeza Corrirossi, Kelly Kovacic, Madi Limbrick, Napiorkowski, Stephanie Rosenwinkel, Maria Rossi, Sam Williams and Jordyn Withey.
