COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The University Interscholastic League crowned 12 state tennis champions on Tuesday at the Mitchell Tennis Center on the Texas A&M campus. College Station's Nick Bradham won the 3A Boys' Singles Championship with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 win over Robinson's Jacob Wingate. Franklin's Carrie Casey successfully defended her 2A Girls' Singles Championship with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Jaycie Talbot of Rogers.
It's the first state tennis title for College Station High School and as a sophomore Bradham will have two more years to win a state championship. It will be tougher next year as the Cougars move up to Class 5A.
For Casey it is her 4th state tennis championship. She won two as a doubles player with her sister Kayla. She won the last two playing singles. Casey has two older sisters who also won state championships and her mom won state while attending Franklin High School. To date, the Casey family has won 12 state tennis championships.
Not only did the Casey family see their state championship collection grow, but Carrie's state championship extends Franklin string of winning tennis gold medals to 10 straight years.
Casey will continue her tennis career at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls.
