Saturday at Nielsen Tennis Stadium, Tilly and Shelby Chorney of Waunakee completed their march through the Division One Doubles bracket to win the State Championship. They defeated Mardee Merar and Katya Mikhailanko of Homestead 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. 

The finals were a bit of an adjustment for the Chorneys. They strolled through their first four matches of the tournament, winning each in straight sets to advance to the finals.

In the finals, the duo from Homestead provided some different challenges, as they took the first set 3-6. Undaunted, the pair from Waunakee focused to take the final two sets and the championship.
