The first matches of this year's girls state tennis tournament were set to begin at 8 a.m. Friday.

But rain and lightning forced a nearly three-hour weather delay, causing Class 4A's quarterfinal and consolation bracket matches to continue late into the evening.

The last match didn't end until 10:30 p.m.

OCS DOUBLES TEAM UPSETS PERRY

Oklahoma Christian School's No. 1 doubles team of freshman Brooke Bates and junior Danielle Roberts are in the Class 4A semifinals after upsetting Perry's No. 2-seeded team in the quarterfinals.

The OCS duo topped Oklahoma Bible Academy's team in the first round and will face third-seeded Metro Christian (senior Becky Orr and freshman Becca Richison) Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

ADA, METRO CHRISTIAN UNBEATEN SO FAR

Two Class 4A teams won all their matches in Friday's first two rounds: Ada and Metro Christian.

The two schools are on opposite sides of the bracket, setting up possible championship matches, in No. 2 singles, No. 1 doubles and No. 2 doubles.

But in No. 1 singles, Ada junior Margo Martin and Metro Christian junior Reynolds Chew will meet in the semifinals Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
