Clinton’s doubles team of Mackenzie Lange and Emily Manemann, and Camanche’s Maci Sloane all fell in the consolation rounds at the IGHSAU State Girls Tennis Tournament Wednesday.
Lange and Manemann fell 2-1 to Urbandale’s Katie Carver and Lily Dykstra in the first round in Class 2A doubles at the Hawkeye Tennis Complex in Iowa City, before falling to Waukee’s Puja Mekala and Morgan Seashore 2-0 in the consolation round.
“Emily Manemann and Mackenzie Lange reached their goal of going to state in girls doubles,” Clinton coach Cindy Rasche said. “They had a great run at those girls in the second and third sets, but came up short. They had great teammates who traveled to Iowa City, along with many family members. They were a part of a team that finished in the final eight. Not too shabby a year for the River Queens. Abby Struble and Anna Current will be going to mixed doubles state with male partners Brody Manemann and Blake Haskell on June 8 in Ankeny. We wish them the best of luck in an open, unseeded draw.”
Sloane, the Class 1A singles bracket at Byrnes Park in Waterloo, fell to Pella’s Emily Blom 2-0 in the first round. Sloane rebounded for a 2-0 win over Cherokee Washington’s Kenna Mongan, but then fell 2-0 to Boone’s Kinsie Zinnel.
