Hunter Keithley/Hannah Zimmerman
     lost to Claire Southard/Megan Gullette Notre Dame (Cape Girardeau) 0-6, 1-6
     lost to Brandee Loftus/Kassidy Anderson Mt Vernon 3-8

     Chillicothe Hornet seniors Hunter Keithley and Hannah Zimmerman brought their high school tennis careers to an end at state competition at the Cooper tennis complex in Springfield. The seniors were 22-4 in doubles on the season. Due to weather, the competition was played indoors. After a delay, the Hornets played Claire Southard and Megan Gullette from Notre Dame High School (which finished fourth in state team competition).
     The Hornets were unable to find their stroke and lost 0-6, 1-6. In consolation competition, Keithley and Zimmerman had moments where they were able to show how they have dominated northern Missouri doubles, but were unable to sustain a high level, eventually losing 3-8. Zimmerman finished her high school career as MEC and District doubles champion as well as state qualifier.
     Keithley shared those same honors along with being a three-time state qualifier. John Burroughs high school won the team competition and the singles and doubles championship.
