BEREA - Area tennis players finally ran out of wins Sunday at the Girls 9th Region Tournament.
Harrodsburg's Brooke Shepperson, the No. 4 singles seed, and Boyle County's Jennifer Gander and Meredith McCann, the No. 2 doubles seed, lost in the semifinals.
Gander and McCann fell 2-6, 1-6 to Arnold and Foster of Pulaski Southwestern, the No. 4 seeds.
"They played a lot better than they did in regular season. I beat them then," Gander said. "They played a lot better today. We just were not moving. I think we were both tired from the matches (earlier in the region) as well as prom (Saturday night).
"I knew walking on the court it was going to be a harder match than we played before against them, but I thought we could pull it off. Even after we lost the first set, I still thought we could do it. We have a bad habit of getting down and then turning around and winning match. But today we just did not have the energy or focus to do that. We didn't do as well as we hoped, but we still made it farther than a lot of girls and that's something to be proud of."
