The best match of the first round of the state tennis championships involved Turpin 3-year qualifier Caitlin Fisher and the top seed out of the Northeast, Anna Roggenburk of Magnificat. Roggenburk was the state runner-up a year ago and defeated Fisher along the way. This fall, Fisher put up a better fight against a girl who had barely lost a set in the regular season. The final was 6-3, 2-6, 6-1.
"It was a tough first match for sure," Fisher said. "I played her last year in the quarterfinals and I think I only won one game. This time I won a whole set. I definitely improved a lot."
