The Lady Bucs’ No. 1 singles player, Erika Ridgway, came up short in the finals of her bracket against Lewis County’s Sarah Law and placed second.
Nanners trailed Bridgeport’s Jenna McKee 2-0 in the No. 2 singles championship match, but from there reeled off eight straight games for a convincing 8-2 win. Nanners improved her season record to 13-3 overall.
