Fisher Places 4th at State Tennis Championships

Turpin sophomore Caitlin Fisher placed fourth at tbe state championship tennis tournament Saturday, one of the top finishes in Turpin sports history. Fisher had one of the more exciting Division I first round matches, going three sets to beat Cassie Alcala of Pickerington North, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. That put her in the second round with the "other" Emily Thomas of Massillon Jackson. Fisher won 6-2, 7-5 to become Turpin's first singles semifinalist and the first for coach Gail Maundrell.


"I started off the day a little rough, but I just kept fighting," Fisher said. "I was able to pull out my first match. My second match was also tough. I just tried to play my best and it worked. It was really difficult, especially with the win."

The day was sweet for Fisher after losing in the first round a year ago.
