Dominant Auburn sending 5 to state in tennis

MACHESNEY PARK – Auburn’s girls tennis team won their fourth straight IHSA Class 2A sectional this past weekend and five Knights will be heading to the state tournament this weekend.

Guilford will be sending two to Buffalo Grove for the 2A tournament, which runs Thursday through Saturday.

Amy Park, a junior, will be going in singles after losing just one game in four matches. She’ll be joined by Auburn’s top two doubles teams, which met in the sectional finals. In the best match of the weekend, Alyssa Trapp and Addysen Feng knocked off Maddy Harned and Rebecca Wang, 6-3, 7-6 (4) for the sectional title.

Guilford’s top doubles team, senior Anju Griffeth and sophomore Mackenzie Larson, qualified by taking fourth in doubles.
