Girls Tennis Wins State Team Championship

Congratulations to the Wildcats girls’ tennis team, which won the WIAA Division 2 State Team Tennis Tournament Saturday in Madison. USM defeated Waukesha Catholic Memorial 5-2 in the tournament finals, after winning their semi-final match against Madison Edgewood earlier in the day by a score of 7-0.

It’s the ninth team championship for USM. The Wildcats won four straight titles from 2004–2007, back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012, and two more state titles in 2014 and 2017. The Wildcats were also runner-up three times in 2008, 2009, and 2013.

The Wildcats’ Veda Sane ’19, who finished third at last week’s individual championships, won her match at No. 1 singles over Lauren Carson, who placed fifth in the individual state tournament. Zoe Francis ’19 also won at No. 2 singles, and Vanessa Goris ’19 won at No. 4 singles for USM.
USM’s Stephanie Guy ’20 and Audrey Treptow ’21 won their No. 2 doubles match and Kala Siddalingaiah ’21 and Rebecca Daskal ’22 won the No. 3 doubles match for the Wildcats.

“We all depend on each other, and it’s a beautiful thing when each of us can collectively push each other towards our goals,” said Sane, who is a team captain. “We achieved the ultimate goal of the season— team state champions—but we also achieved so many other things. We are a united team with so much resilience, determination, and love. Thank you to everyone: coaches, parents, and players for an incredible last season. None of this would’ve happened without each and every one of you.”
