Jessica Willard and Brittany Marshall made history on Wednesday, becoming the first players in the history of the Logan Elm girls tennis program to qualify for the state tournament.
The tandem won two matches before suffering their first setback of the postseason to finish as a district runner-up in the doubles tournament at Ohio University.
Marshall and Willard are just the second and third girls tennis players in Pickaway County history to qualify for state. They join Teays Valley graduate Abby Leatherwood (2005 and 2006) on the short list.
The LE doubles team started their day by defeating Washington Court House’s Rayanne Conner and Sierra Dawson 6-4 and 6-2. Willard and Marshall then dispatched West Holmes’ Nicole Strause and Shyann Kick 7-6 and 6-0 to clinch their spot in the state tournament.
“The girls were tired and a little nervous to begin the day,” LE coach Tony Clouse said. “The first set from each of the first two matches did not display their best play. They looked tight and not as loose as they have been all season.
“Once they were a little more comfortable, they took care of business and we saw glimpses of how they played last week at sectionals. It is difficult to maintain a high level of play when there is so much at stake. Plus, after the stellar play last week, there was more pressure on them. Everyone was out to get them as the number one seed.”
Congratulations to the girls golf team for being sectional champs. Way to go Lady Braves.
The Logan Elm High School, and McDowell Exchange School, held a shoe drive on August 12th for the Pickaway County Haven House. The team was able to collect over 30 pair of shoes, over 10 bags of clothes, and an ample amount of books and toys for the cause. After the drive ended, the athletes went to the Haven House and delivered the shoes and clothes just in time for a brand new school year. Many of the runners indicated that it felt great to go out in the community to help people in need.
