Tiger tennis finishes year at state

Two Dripping Springs High doubles teams completed their seasons at the UIL state tennis tournament at Texas A&M University in College Station May 16. In the first round of the 5A girls doubles draw, the Dripping Springs pair of Karley Higgerson and Whitney Robbins fell to Grapevine High’s Reilly Cleff and Madison Plowman 6-2, 6-2. On the boys side, Thane Johannsen and Henry Lovelace fell 6-2, 6-1 to A&M Consolidated HS’s Henning Schade and Joey Tindall in the first round.By qualifying for the state tournament both doubles teams were one of the final eight doubles teams in 5A in their respective events.  The teams of Higgerson/Robbins and Johannsen/Lovelace were the first Dripping Springs doubles teams to qualify for the state tournament since the mixed doubles team of Samuel Brodsky and Sarah Brodsky did so in 2014. The only other DSHS state-qualifier during that time frame was girls singles player Jayci Goldsmith who won back-to-back state championships in 2017 and 2018.
