Published 8:00 am Tuesday, October 30, 2018

The career of Polk County senior Hannah Jenne came to an end on Saturday, as Jenne was defeated in the semifinals of the state 1A tennis tournament in Cary.

Jenne, the 1A West Regional champion, dropped a 6-3, 6-1 decision to Gray Stone Day’s Emma Bost whom Jenne defeated in last week’s regional tournament during Saturday morning’s semfinal action at Cary Tennis Park. The final was played later on Saturday.

“Hannah cramped up in her calves midway through the first set and up 3-2,” said Polk County head coach Richard Davis. “No cramps and she probably plays for the state title.”

Jenne teamed with Tana Harris to win the state 1A doubles championship a season ago and is believed to be the first girls regional tennis champion in school history.

Research Triangle freshman Sabrina Grewal defeated Bost 6-2, 6-1 in the final to win the 1A state title.
