In the girls doubles LCHS had very high hopes. They had two very good teams just chomping at the bit to make deep runs. But due to unforeseen complications the team of Lindsey Stahl and Laurel Hales had to forfeit.
And in the midst of dominating their match Brenna Brown took a fall that cut the match short. Meg and Brenna Brown would have to forfeit the match due to the accident. Brenna Brown would end up needing surgery after breaking her wrist in two places. We at the newspaper wish her a quick recovery.
