"CM had not had any girls qualify for state in tennis for several years," Coach Welbourne said. "They were champions of their flight at our Conference Tournament (MVC), which I'm pretty positive hasn't happened in a very long time, if ever."

The coach said the girls have put in so much work during the year and their record shows it.

Currently, before state, the Davis-Harms combination is 26-3 overall.

Congratulations to Emma Davis and Abigail Harms for their Tom Lane State Farm Insurance Female Athlete of the Month recognition.
