The Fairfield varsity girls tennis team advanced to the Class 1A state tournament a 2nd straight year after taking a 5-1 regional final win over Davis County Friday inside the MUM rec center. Winning in singles were one through 3 Yana Gaskell, Anatta Charoenkul and Nellie Higdon plus Tess Paton at 5. Gaskell and Higdon wrapped up the match with a win at number one doubles. Davis County came out on top at 4 singles while the 6 singles match was not finished since the outcome had been decided.
Fairfield is now 12 and 0. They move on to state with the first round competition scheduled 3 Tuesday afternoon against Dubuque Wahlert at Iowa City.
