Camille Hankel played her last two matches of her Hanover career and finished with 112 wins after taking her singles and doubles matches.
“Camille put a lot of effort into this team,” said Eastridge. “She’s taken a lot on herself to keep everyone focused.”
The teams of Hankel and Acker, and Hazuki Horiuchi and Willa Kaufman won their doubles matches. The team of Mary DiHarce and Kelly Corson won their doubles match for St. Thomas Aquinas.
The big drama of the day came in the singles match on Court No. 3, where Zoe Yu of Hanover came back from a 7-4 deficit to defeat DiHarce, 9-7. That win gave the Marauders the crown.
“That’s the type of team they’ve been all year,” said Eastridge.
