Chelan's Megan Robinson earned her fourth State medal in four years, finishing in seventh place at the State tennis tournament last weekend at West Valley High School in Yakima.
Robinson began the tournament last Friday, May 30, against Riverside's Yara Thye. Robinson won the match in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3. She went on to face defending State champion Michelle Lui of Forest Ridge. Lui won the match, 6-0, 6-0. Robinson needed a win in the next match to earn a medal, taking on Castle Rock's Faith Stein. Robinson was able to win the match in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0.
The win set up a match for fourth-place last Saturday, May 31. She took on Forest Ridge's Sasha Cayward, with Robinson falling in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0, earning herself a seventh-place medal.
Winning the girls tournament was defending State champion Michelle Lui of Forest Ridge.
"It was Megan's fourth medal in four years, a rare accomplishment," Chelan Coach Marty Rothlisberger said. "The 2014 1A State Tennis Tournament was by far the most talented (and therefore the toughest) high school State tournament I've seen. Unfortunately, it was dominated by private schools, who filled 12 out of the 16 semifinals slots, won three of the four individual championships, and both team titles. We still had a fun weekend, and feel good about getting some wins and a medal to bring home."
Chelan had one competitor on the boys side of the tournament, junior Eli Jenkins. Jenkins started off the tournament against Davenport's Max Mielke, with Jenkins falling in straight sets, 6-1, 6-0. Jenkins won his second match of the day to stay alive in the tournemant, defeating Connell's Patrick Hadley in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3.
Jenkins lost his next match to end his tournament, falling to La Salle's Brendan Stewart in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2.
"Eli had immensely successful season, and will be a pillar of our squad in 2015," Rothlisberger said.
