Claiming 15 victories and its sixth straight sectional championship, the Seymour girls tennis team had a lot to celebrate this spring.
On Friday, the program met one last time to celebrate the 2017 season.
Seniors Addie Rudge and Katie O’Mara were named co-most valuable players on the evening.
O’Mara and Rudge, who played No. 1 doubles together for a majority of the season, dropped just two matches while on the same side of the court — in the regional team championship against Columbus North and versus Bloomington North in the individual sectional finals for doubles.
Rudge went 16-4 and O’Mara finished with a record of 17-7 on the season in various positions.
The two made the All-Hoosier Hills Conference and All-District 8 teams along with senior Hallie Crenshaw, who played No. 1 singles.
The mental attitude award also went to Rudge.
Captain’s awards went to Crenshaw and fellow senior Megan Baurle. Baurle was All-HHC honorable mention for her efforts at No. 2 singles.
Senior Rachel Collett collected the most improved plaque.
Collett and senior Marie Armes were Academic-All State. There were just 67 girls in the state who received the award, which takes grade-point average and SAT and ACT scores.
Crenshaw, O’Mara, Rudge and senior Kelli Armes were Academic All-State honorable mention.
