Clark sisters win another state title
Kara and Katy Clark of West Lincoln haven’t lost a doubles tennis match since the state title match when they were in eighth grade.
That streak culminated in four straight state championships for the sisters, including the 1A-2A state championship Wednesday afternoon in Oxford.
Both Kara and Katy Clark blazed through the competition with ease, never dropping a set on their way to the state championship for girls doubles play.
In round one, they defeated Brittany Barnett and Amber Wyland from Enterprise with ease in straight sets 6-0, 6-0.
The duo wouldn’t drop a game in the second round either, taking down Courtney Buffington and Madison Crapps from Pisgah in straight sets 6-0, 6-0.
In the semifinals, the Clark sisters defeated Bella Posey and Anna Taylor from Sacred Heart 6-0, 6-3.
Wednesday in the state championship match, the Clark sisters claimed their fourth straight 1A-2A title by defeating Caroline Upchurch and Lauren Williamson from Tupelo Christian Prep in straight set 6-0, 6-2.
