Following her Regional championship run, sophomore Issa Sullivan concluded the 2017 tennis season with a fourth-place finish at the 5A State Tournament earning all-State honors for the second consecutive year.
Sullivan wrapped up the season with an overall singles record of 29-3 and an overall match record of 33-3. She also wrote her way into the De Soto High School and USD 232 record books by becoming the first girl in the history of the school (and district) to finish in the top 4 in singles at two State tournaments.
“5A State was a tough tournament with a strong field. We were aiming to finish higher than Issa’s 3rd place finish a year ago, so it is easy to be discouraged at a fourth place finish. It is never easy at State and I am proud of how Issa competed and represented De Soto during a difficult tournament,” says Coach Justin Hoffman.
