Class 6A state tennis notes: Edmond North, Jenks tie for title; Ann Pepper claims No. 2 singles title

Pepper finished a sensational freshman campaign with a straight set win against Jenks’ Gabrielle Siegler to earn the championship.

"She really turned up her game and made me earn it. I liked that because I wanted to feel like I won it,” Pepper said.

Pepper smoked Siegler, 6-1, in the first set but trailed 5-4 in the second and Siegler had a chance to serve it out but Pepper won the final three games.

Memorial duos third, team fourth
The Edmond Memorial doubles teams played just as much a role in determining the team champions as did North and Jenks.

Both of the Bulldogs’ doubles teams placed third. And when the No. 1 team of Megan Montgomery and Peyton Rainey defeated North’s Lexus Reed and Kristin Bomhoff, it guaranteed it would be a tie for the championship.

Memorial sophomore Shelby Nicholson and freshman Shali Schoepflin placed third at No. 2 doubles. The Bulldogs finished fourth as a team.
