BEAVERTON — Corvallis High's Anna Kern defeated her sister, Tessa, to take the 5A girls state singles title at Tualatin Tennis Center.
The Spartans were able to hold off Summit to take their third straight 5A girls team title. Crescent Valley was third.
Anna, the top seed, took a 6-3, 6-3 win over No. 2 seed Tessa.
It was Anna's first state title. She finished second last year, losing to four-time champion Madisyn Bryant of Marist.
"This year’s final was different because last year I didn’t really expect to win, I was the freshman and my opponent was the senior. I was definitely the underdog," Anna Kern said.
"This year I won districts so I had a little bit of an advantage. I approached the match with a different mindset which really helped me."
Anna said she and her sister had colds.
