“She has really good forehands and backhands,” Johnson said of her partner. “And whatever she can’t get, I can get to because I’m fast.”
Regional results were provided by Cascia Hall tennis coach Molly Hannagan.
Of the six Lady Buffs going to State, only Key and Johnson have never been to State before. Amy is the only returning placer, having finished eighth with then-senior Loretta Medina in 2013.
“I’m excited,” Key said.
“I think this year, we’re stronger than ever ... because we all started as freshman and we’ve just been working at it year to year.”
The state tournament begins today at the Oklahoma City Tennis Center at 3400 N. Portland Ave. Qualifying teams met Thursday evening at Putnam City High School to decide seeding.
