Haley at StateThe Legend Girl’s Tennis team finished their season with 41 wins and 51 losses. Senior captain Natasha Williams and sophomore Haley Hildenbrand lost first round, 6-2 and 6-4, to Rocky Mountain High School at Colorado’s 5A State Championship Tournament.

“It was truly remarkable how they qualified,” said Coach Craig Marshall.

Williams and Hildenbrand beat Fairview in the final match, which was, according to Natasha, a thrilling match.

During the regular season, Hildenbrand and Williams played a similar match against Rock Canyon. The team displayed a relentless attitude while executing mid-court overhead smashes during a thrilling 3 set victory over the Rock Canyon team.

“They were down 3-5 in the third set and proceeded to win the next four games. They won the match against Fairview on a double fault,” Marshall said. “It was a great season and all of the players fought and deserved to be at state.
