Cassie Smith graduated from Champlain Valley Union High last spring after taking a second consecutive Vermont high school girls’singles crown and helping the Redhawks to the Division 1 team title.
This past weekend, Smith was front and center in the prestigious Jeff Stone Memorial Tennis Tournament and made it through two rounds to the women’s open semifinals before bowing out.
In Saturday’s semis, Smith lost 6-4 and 7-5 to Danika Robison who is a South Burlington native now playing tennis for Skidmore College.
