After regular season success, Going 20-0, Sophomore Tyra Stanley still wants more as Sectionals approach. Tyra joins Cassie Fleming in 2007, Fleming was 14-0 in the regular season before she lost in the 5th round of the state tournament. The most recent person to go undefeated in the regular season was Sarah Osborne in the 2014 season. Sarah lost in the 2nd round of the state tournament. Talent may just run in the Stanley family, Tyra’s sister (Mason) and her teammate Abby Fleming, were 2015 state finalist and both were named to the 2015 1st team all state. Tyra Stanley becomes the first Sophomore in Girls Tennis history to have an undefeated season at 20-0. As a team The Lady Indians Tennis Team won the CIC Conference defeating Madison Grant to seal the deal, the Lady Indians ended the regular season 13-2. A fun fact to add about Girls Tennis is they have had the most consistency over the last decade with wins in a season. I had the chance to talk to Tyra on Friday and asked her how cool it would be to go undefeated. “It would be really cool, I’m trying my best”. “As a team I feel we have done very well, knowing we won the Conference is great we worked really hard this season” said Stanley. The IHSAA Girls Tennis State Tournament begins this Wednesday for the Lady Indians at Marion High School beginning at 5pm. Stay tuned to @DaltonBishop00 @MHSTribeTV and @MCSCAthletics on Twitter for updates as we will have coverage of the MHS Girls Tennis Team on Wednesday.

Stanley Talks About Her Undefeated Season- “It feels awesome to go undefeated and to have been added to school history. My biggest reason for success has been my coach who has believed in me and who has put hundreds of hours into practice. I also have to thank my family who makes sure I make it to every match, My incredible team who makes it so much fun to play with.”
