Three members of the Bishop Lynch tennis team will compete at the TAPPS State Championships next month after qualifying during regional tournament play this week.

Ashlyn Duy, Jillian Brown and Ben Walter each performed well enough during the two-day regional event at Collin County Community College to earn a trip to state, scheduled for April 10-11 at the Waco Regional Tennis Center.

Duy punched his ticket to state on the first day of regionals, finishing fourth overall.

Brown needed to win her final two matches on Day 2 of the regional meet, and did so dropping just one game during the two. She ended the regional meet in fifth place.

Walter was the final player from BL to earn a spot, doing so by winning his last two matches over singles players from Liberty Christian.
