The Wyoming high state tennis tournament concluded on Saturday. Tennis teams from across the state competed to become state champions.

The matches were competitive and nothing short of exciting. There was a repeat of champions this season but we saw many new champions be crowned on Saturday.

Emily Needham of Cheyenne Central was able to claim the championship again this season. Needham has now won back to back No. singles state titles. Needham also won the No. 2 singles state title in 2018.

As a team, the Cheyenne Central girls placed first for the fourth straight season. This completed the successful four-peat for Central.

The Kelly Walsh team was able to cap off a successful season. Its boy's teams claimed the top spot and the girl's teams finished in second.
