Tiger Mixed Doubles Duo Headed to State Tourney for Second Year Tiger Mixed Doubles Duo Headed to State Tourney for Second Year

Braden Tipton and Camryn Stepp are headed back to the UIL State Tennis Tournament for the second straight season after another stellar showing at the Region I tourney last week at the Arlington Tennis Center.

The Tiger duo went 3-1 during the tourney and fell just short in the championship match. However, both teams in the championship match qualify for state.

Tipton and Stepp began the tournament with a 6-3, 6-2 win against a team from Trophy Club Byron Nelson and followed with an impressive 6-0, 6-3 second-round victory versus a team from Abilene High.

They advanced to the title match after beating a team from Coppell 6-2, 6-3.

The UIL State Championships are scheduled for May 16-17 at Texas A&M University in College Station. Stepp and Tipton hope to better their performance from a year ago when they made it to the state semifinals before losing to the eventual state champion from Austin Westlake.
