Coach Jesse Macias from Alton High, “Congrats to Triad on a terrific performance. There were a lot of strong teams but they played great on every flight. Also, a big shoutout to Seanvi Gudreddi from Lafayette for defending her championship at number one singles. That flight was stacked and she played fantastically to win it. Cor Jesu was new this year but they have some fantastic players so I can’t wait to have them back next year. There was just great tennis everywhere.”

Alton was led by the Schuler sisters. Senior Eleanor and sophomore Lilly finished second at number two singles. Coach Macias, “those two have been steady all year. They pulled out a dog fight in the semis and came up short in the finals, but I’m very proud of them.“

Sophomores Lauren Massey and Scarlett Eades finished fourth at three doubles and seniors Chloe Plough and Lydia Taul finished fifth at one doubles. Senior Devora Newquist won the consolation at number two singles and senior Anna Brady tied for seventh.

Coach Macias said: “We needed every point today and all of our players contributed. It was a great day.”

Coach Macias added that it was so nice to honor the late Robert Logan, a former Alton High tennis coach and exceptional player, with this tournament.

"Tennis was a huge part of his life and I know he would have been proud of the competitive spirit and excellent sportsmanship the players demonstrated today.

"Robert’s mom Theresa Logan was out here handing out trophies and talking to the players and coaches. I know she likes to help celebrate Robert at this tournament and we are grateful that she came out.”
