Boyle’s Witten gets No. 2 seed at state tourney
CeCe Witten of Boyle County has been seeded No. 2 in the girls singles draw at the State Tennis Championships, which begin Thursday in Lexington.
Witten, a junior who is coming off her sixth consecutive 12th Region singles championship, is behind only Samantha Maddox of Lexington Catholic, last year’s runner-up and the girl who eliminated Witten when she reached the semifinals for the first time in 2009.
Witten lost in last year’s semis to two-time champion Lauren Kline of North Oldham, who has graduated.
Boys 12th Region singles champion Kyle Jeffries of Casey County, who has won four straight regional championships — two in doubles, then two in singles — had hoped to receive a seed but did not.
