Class 5A


The O’Donnell brothers, Dawson and Oakley avenged their loss a season ago winning their first state title and completing the undefeated season.

Going undefeated was gravy. I’ve never had a singles player or doubles go undefeated so that makes this one unique. Each title has its own special story attached to it, they’re all special to me.”
