Cypress Ranch Senior Qualifies for State Tennis Tournament

Cypress Ranch High School senior Courtney Andersonwill represent CFISD at the upcoming UIL State Championships after winning the girls’ singles championship at the Region III-5A Tennis Championships, April 16-17 at Deer Park High School.

Anderson, who was seeded fifth entering the tournament, knocked off three higher seeds—including a 6-1, 6-1 victory over top-seeded Samantha Martino of Seven Lakes High School in the semifinals—to advance to state.

Anderson will compete at the UIL State Tennis Championships, set for April 29-30 at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center at the University of Texas.

“Courtney had a great tournament. After placing second at district, she got more motivated and worked harder to prepare for regionals with a goal of making it to state,” said Minh Phan, Cypress Ranch head tennis coach. “As a result, she accomplished her regional goal and is very much looking forward to the state tournament. I’m very happy for her to represent Cy Ranch and the Cy-Fair district at state.”

CFISD’s other top-three finisher was Jersey Village sophomore Laura Galvan, who placed third in the girls’ singles bracket. Galvan lost to the No. 2 seed in the semifinal round, but won the third-place match against Martino to place.
