For the first time in Adamsville High School history, a Lady Cardinal advanced to the Class A-AA State Tournament.

Darby Congiardo, District 15 A-AA’s Female Tennis Player of the Year, earned a berth in the Individuals portion of the state tournament after defeating Sacred Heart’s Alice Nelson in the Region 8 A-AA Championship last Monday (6-2, 3-6, 6-1). She advanced to the finals after a semifinals victory over Middle College’s Angeleane Blue, winning in straight sets (6-3, 6-1).

“(Congiardo) is the first girl in AHS Tennis to make it to state,” said Cardinal head coach Michael Harvill. “So, this is very special. She had a great year. Now, we want to take it to a state level.”
