The Geneseo High School Girls’ Tennis Team tied with Springfield Sacred Heart for championship honors at the recent Galesburg Invite. There were eight teams in competition. Coach Kevin Reed said at number one singles Aubrey Brumbaugh lost to Sacred Heart in the first round in a third set tie breaker, 11-9, and she bounced back to win the next two to take fifth place. At number two singles Mia Kelly won her first match and then lost to Sacred Heart and came back to win her third place match. Coach Kevin Reed said, “For us to tie our doubles, teams needed to win the tournament which they did over Sacred Heart.”
