Westwood High School freshman Kiana Graham won the UIL Texas Tennis State Tournament, earning a title of State Champion after an undefeated season.
Kiana ousted the defending State Champion in the first round of the tournament, held May 18-19 in College Station. She finished the season with a 26-0 record.
“It feels amazing to win,” Kiana said. “It feels like all the hard work paid off.”
Kiana began playing tennis just before turning 10 years old and has remained committed to the sport, training daily for three hours.
“It’s been amazing having Kiana as part of the program,” said Travis Dalrymle, Westwood head tennis coach. “While she is an incredible tennis player, she is a great student and a wonderful person.”
