Great day to be from Oakland County
Lahser's Mollie Fox outlasted Richland Gull Lake's Sara Remynse in three sets to win the No. 1 singles title. Top-notch tennis on both sides of the net. Gutsy effort by Fox, who finally broke through and can now call herself a state champion.
And Marian left no doubt who was the best team on Saturday. The Mustangs started the 2nd day a little rough, but rebounded well thanks to their singles (Lauren Dietz, Breann Lunghamer and Catherine Yaldoo) and the 2-doubles team of Tatyanna Dadabbo and Sally Thoresen.
In all, there were six Oakland County champions in Grand Blanc (Fox, Lunghamer, Meryl Reams, Nancy Benda-Jackie Meier, Dadabbo-Thoresen and Lauren Benderoff-Sam Lareau).
Cranbrook won seven flight championships in Division 3, Sacred Heart won five in Division 4 and Clarkston and Mercy had one each in Division 1, giving Oakland County 20 overall. That's nearly 2/3 of the total flight championship in the state (32).
