RADFORD—The Riverheads girls doubles team of Jessica Milo and Lauren Reese saw their bid for a state tennis title stopped short Friday when they lost to Laura Ambrose and Reagan White of Rappahannock High, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, in the semifinals of the state 1A tournament held at Radford University.

For Milo, who just graduated, this was her last high school match, but Reese, just a sophomore, will return to the courts next spring.

“I am very proud of Jessica and Lauren,” said Gladiator coach Reuben Siskin. “They have become a great duo on and off the court. Since this was Lauren's first year playing tennis, Jessica has done a great job of teaching her partner and the rest of the team what it takes to be a top tennis player in the area. Jessica will be missed next season, but the team will prosper due to her leadership,” he added.
