Tennis: TenBroeck concludes career by taking 4th at State
October 24, 2012
Douglas senior Kari TenBroeck wrapped up her much-decorated tennis career at the high school with an impressive showing at the NIAA Division State Championships over the weekend.
TenBroeck, the No. 2 seed out of Northern Nevada in the singles bracket, beat Coronado’s Paris Reese 6-4, 6-1 with an inspired effort at the Caughlin Athletic Club in Reno.
The win was the first at a state tournament for a Douglas High School girls’ tennis player in at least a decade.
TenBroeck fell in the second round to eventual state champion Chelsea Crovetti of Bishop Gorman, losing 6-1, 6-2.
She then lost in the third-place match 7-6 (6), 6-0 to Reno’s Elissa Pavelea.
TenBroeck, who won the Northern 4A singles title in 2009, closes out her career at Douglas with a 130-15 record, which ranks third all-time behind Lisa Chacon (184-10 between 1986-89) and Amelia Ritger (147-7 from 2007-10). She also qualified for state three times and was a regional No. 1 seed twice.
