TULSA, Okla. — Enid girls tennis players Kathryn Dillingham and Alexandra Dick didn’t win a match in the East vs. West All-State Tennis games Tuesday.

But that didn’t matter much — they’d already done enough in four years at Enid.

“They got to play in front of their parents and play together one more time,” said Enid High School tennis coach Darrell Herndon. “I wouldn’t want to rank my top girls one-through-five or anything, but I would like to think there’s a top group, and these girls are definitely in it.”

Dillingham and Dick played first in No. 1 doubles for the West team, losing to a pair from state power Jenks 8-6, pulling to within 7-6 after trailing 4-1 early.

Dick lost 8-3 to Broken Arrow’s Courtney Coon 8-3 in No. 2 singles, and Dillingham fell to Jenks’ Piper Huey 8-4 in No. 3 singles.

The East won the team competition 8-4, taking six of eight singles matches.
