Kizziar competes in State tennis at OSU

Juhree Kizziar was the lone Outlaw from the girls tennis squad who competed at the 4A State tennis Championships Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21 at Oregon State University.

Kizziar defeated sophomore Allen Herrera from Ontario 6-1, 6-1, in the first round of 16 on Friday. In the quarterfinals she fell 1-6, 1-6 to senior Anna Semier of Catlin Gable, and was eliminated from the tournament.

Kizziar shared her thoughts on the experience.

“My first match was a little easier, and the second match I learned what I need to do, and I’m excited to get better,” she said. “Semier’s ground strokes were amazing! I want to play with more confidence and not worry about missing.

“I felt like I played consistent and never gave up,” added Kizziar. “And, it was fun seeing everyone at higher levels.”

Coach Bruce Fenn said, “As Juhree learns to hit with more pace in all shots with confidence she will elevate her game to new heights. Juhree’s tennis journey has only begun!”
