Morgan, Stiles cap tennis careers with state tourney appearance

Republic tennis seniors Hannah Morgan and Katie Stiles ended their high school tennis careers with a trip to the state tournament at Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield. Morgan and Stiles qualified as doubles partners after being paired late in the season. They won their first five matches together before dropping their two outings at the state tournament.
In the state opener, they jumped to an early lead in
the first set against Laila Mai Votruba and Camille Carlton of Timberland, grabbing a 4-2 lead. But the Timber- land pair got hot, winning 11 of the next 13 games to pull away for a 7-5, 1-6 vic- tory. In the second round, Stiles and Morgan dropped their match to a team from Parkway Central, 8-1.
Morgan and Stiles effec- tively finish tied for 13th in Class 2 as the result of their state appearance.
