Joseph wins title

For the third straight year, Kathy Joseph, a senior at Champlain Valley Union High School, won the VT State Individual Tennis Championships. The competition was held this year at Bridges Resort, and she beat Jordan Walsh of Essex 6-1, 6-0 in the finals. She dropped only one game in the tournament.

Her coach, Amy DeGroot, said Joseph played close to 50 games in a row before dropping one game. ‘That requires a tremendous level of attention,’ she said. ‘She still played her aggressive, dominating style but she used more patience to move her opponent off the court before hitting to the open court. Without a doubt Kathy is one of the strongest female tennis players Vermont has ever seen.’  (LEFT) Stephanie Joseph, who placed third) poses with sister Kathy.
