•McGuinness sophomores sweep tennis national: McGuinness sophomore Whitney Ritchie won the singles title at a United States Tennis Association National Open in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Monday.

Ritchie, 16, came in as the eighth seed out of 64 but never dropped a set in winning her biggest tournament ever, said coach Tim Ritchie.

In the finals, Ritchie won 6-3, 7-6 (4) over third-seeded Jasmine Minor. Whitney beat three of the top six seeds for the crown.

Ritchie and her doubles partner, Mia Lancaster, had no problems taking home the doubles crown, beating the top-ranked squad of Brett Ellen Keeler and Olga Khmylev, 8-4, in the final.

Lancaster, a sophomore at McGuinness, won the sportsmanship award and placed in the top 10 of the singles competition. Lancaster moved from Dallas to Oklahoma City in August.

"The event was a great success for both girls,” Tim Ritchie said. "We knew they would be able to compete well, but you can't do much better than what Whitney and Mia did.”
