Only two of the seven girls tennis players in contention for a state singles championship this weekend are seniors.

One is Greenwood’s Jade Kawamoto, who a year ago could be seen and heard cheering on twin sister, Jackie, as she won the title against Carmel’s Bailey Padgett, 7-6 (7-5), 7-1.

The other is Padgett.

It remains to be seen whether another grueling Kawamoto-Padgett finale plays out Saturday afternoon at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis, though the bracketing does make it possible.
