At Niles West: Antioch edged out the host school by one point to win the championship.

Sequoits freshman Kelsey Neville won second place at No. 1 singles. In the championship match, she faced off against Niles West's Eliza Kirov, a sophomore who qualified for state last season. Neville dropped both sets, but she forced a tiebreaker in the first set and picked up 4 games against Kirov's 6 in the second set, "proving that she is a force to be reckoned with, despite her youth," Sequoits coach Jamie D'Andrea said.

Antioch senior Maddie Brost won second place at No. 2 singles. She beat out players from Resurrection and Lane Tech before succumbing to Niles West (7-5, 6-4) in the championship game.

Antioch juniors Anna Arden and Annie Horner won their first two matches at No. 1 doubles against Plainfield Central and North Shore Country Day to play in the championship match against Timothy Christian. Arden and Horner lost the third-set tiebreaker to take second.

Antioch sophomores Emma DeJong and Elizabeth Gardner played at No. 2 doubles, and they beat out teams from North Shore Country Day, Niles West and Timothy Christian to take first place.
