Aleman competes in state tennis tournament
Samantha Aleman concluded a brilliant tennis career at GEHS with participation in her fourth straight state tournament last week.
Despite an 0-2 record at state, Aleman ended her career with a school record 107 wins and placed in the top 6 in 4 straight regionals. She recorded a season record 30 wins in her freshman season.
GEHS will lose Aleman to graduation but return a solid cast for next year. Top returnees include Abby Kessler, Anna Winkler, Kahmia Dunson, Hannah West, Paige Rossman and Brooklyn Kiosow, sophomores Mary Murphy and Krista Long and freshmen Maddy Martinez, Sami Boring, Paige Rifford and Emily Worth.
