The second game was less of a grind, ending 6-3 in the Academy duo’s favor. The semifinal round was breezy, with Yasemin & Arya triumphing 6-0, 6-3. The partnership faced their biggest trial in the finals. The first game came down to the wire, with the Vikes winning 7-6 after a tiebreaker. However, the team from Hathaway Brown took the second set 6-4. With everything on the line, Yasemin & Arya clutched up, securing the title with a 7-5 victory in the third game.
Congratulations to all the girls for a fantastic season!
