Angie's Brothers Take State in Oklahoma Tennis

How fun-- my little brothers placed 1st and 2nd in Oklahoma for high school tennis this past week.

Congrats guys!

From NewsOK.com:

"Top individuals of the day: German exchange student Felix Brede of Durant beat Tulsa Kelley's Cale Hammond 6-4, 7-5 to win the No. 1 singles title. Kelley's Reider Hunt lost only one game in the tournament to handily win the No. 2 singles title. In No. 1 doubles, Ardmore's Timmy Argo and Luke Jordan beat Shawnee's Nick Copeland and Eric Haley. Chris Copeland and Jeff Seebeck won for Shawnee in No. 2 doubles to help the Wolves take second place in the team standings.

Quotable: "Our first match started off slow, but after that we did great. The finals was the best match we'd played all season. We jumped up 3-0 on them in the first set, and it just rolled on from there.” — Chris Copeland, Shawnee No. 2 doubles player, on teaming with Jeff Seebeck to beat Ada's Chase Sheffield and Colton Calaway.

Noteworthy: The only game Hunt lost came in the first set of his championship match against Deer Creek's Michael Calloway. ... In the semifinals, Copeland and Haley, beat Ada."
