After finishing third in the conference tournament, an Alma student recently earned All-State honors with her performance at the state tennis tournament.

Breanna Williams, a senior member of the Alma tennis team, was the first female player from Alma to compete in girls’ singles at the state level in 24 years, said Toney McMurray, Alma High School tennis coach.

Other students who qualified for state competition were Dalton Webb and Jacob Hamilton in boys’ doubles.

The 5A state tennis tournament was at Rebsamen Tennis Center in Little Rock on Oct. 16th and 17th.

Williams won her first two matches in the state contest, but lost in semifinals. She still earned All-State honors. Webb and Hamilton won their first match, but lost in the quarterfinals, McMurray said.

Alma tennis players finished conference matches on Oct. 10th, after weather caused the second day of the originally planned matches to have to be rescheduled.

According to the Arkansas Activities Association website, Alma competed in the 5A West conference, along with Clarksville, Farmington, Greenbrier, Harrison, Maumelle, Morrilton, and Vilonia.

The conference tournament, which qualified players for state, was at Arkansas Tech University in Ozark on the 3rd, but after the rain delay, had to be finished at University of the Ozarks in Clarksville on the 10th. The end of conference play was moved, due to ATU’s tennis team having their own match and their courts being unavailable.
