Vikings News · 6A Tennis State Champions

The day started off tough with a semi final match against a very strong team from Corner Canyon. The Vikings fell behind 5-2 in the first set but fought back hard to force a tie break at 6 all. In the breaker Maci and Chloie played almost error free to win the breaker 7-1 and the first set.  The Chargers weren[‘t going to go down easy and came out strong once again in the second set, and once again went up 5-2, but just as in the first set, Maci and Chloie dug deep and outlasted the Chargers winning the set 7-5 and the match to secure a spot in the finals!
On the other side of the draw were the other 2 Region 4 teams.  Lone Peak and Skyridge who had spit against each other during the season and it would prove to be the same on this day.  It was a very close match and they ended up splitting sets, but in the 3rd the Falcons came out strong and the Knights had no answers.  Skyridge ended up defeating the Knights 6-1 in the third to move onto the championship to face our Vikings but had no idea what was about to hit them.  Maci and Chloie came out strong and with a purpose, firing on all cylinders with passing shots and aggressive net play.  It only took the Vikings 25 min to win the first 6-0. The Falcons were stunned, and seemed out of place.  They tried to make a push at the start of the 2nd set winning a few games but the Vikings weren’t going to allow it.  They kept up the attack and on match point, Maci smashed an overhead right between them to win the match 6-2 and win the State Championship!
