The magic number for the Bishop McGuinness girls tennis team was 12 on Saturday — as in 12 straight team championships. The team proudly strutted around in "Twelve is swell” T-shirts in the afternoon. But for a couple of the seniors, Whitney Ritchie and Emily Conrad, the magic number was four — as in four-time state champions. Not only did Ritchie and Conrad join that exclusive club, they did it without losing a match in their entire high school career. Ritchie and her partner Trinian O’Neil cruised to the Class 5A No. 1 doubles title, while Conrad needed less than 30 minutes to earn the championship at No. 2 singles Saturday at the state tennis tournament at the OKC Tennis Center. Conrad and Ritchie join two other Irish players as four-time champs, Mary Norwood (1981-84) and Lauren Connelly (1999-2002). "This just feels so good. I’ve had a great career and have so many memories that I’ll never forget,” Conrad said. Despite the championships, Conrad was in an unfamiliar position. Her first three titles came as part of a doubles team. Her fourth is also her first singles championship. Conrad defeated Claremore’s Kristin Richardson 6-0, 6-0. Ritchie and O’Neil didn’t win the title in the semifinals, but it sure felt like it. The pair defeated the only other undefeated team in the draw, Tulsa Edison’s Haley Martin and Abby Tolson, 6-1, 6-2, in the semifinals. Ritchie could barely contain her excitement when the team was up 5-0 in the second set of the championship, turning to coach Vicki Connelly to say, "one more game in my high school career.” The duo defeated Duncan 6-0, 6-0, in the final. After smoking the field at No. 1 singles as a junior, Ritchie returned to the doubles scene this year. "The transition was an easy one. I love my partner (O’Neil),” Ritchie said. "Whenever I would get down on myself, she would pick me up.” Conrad and Ritchie become the 16th and 17th girls to be four-time champions, and the first to have two from the same school accomplish the feat since Ardmore did it in 1986. Ritchie has signed with Oklahoma, while Conrad will attend Abilene Christian.
