The 4A girls state high school tennis tournament begins Thursday in Pueblo. And the number one doubles team at Pueblo West will be heading into that tournament with a little momentum and some recognition. Pueblo West seniors Taylor Smith and Joslyne Lovelace are this week's "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athletes of the Week."
Last year Taylor and Joslyne qualified for the state tournament as the number three doubles team. This year they return to the state tourney but this time as the number one doubles team. And they head into the state tourney on a hot streak. Last weekend at the regionals in Pueblo Taylor and Joslyne upset previously unbeaten Megan Tapia and Kayleigh Brown from Pueblo South.
Congratulations to Taylor and Joslyne and don't forget to nominate your favorite athlete. Hurry because the high school sports season is winding down. Go to NewsFirst5.com and make your nomination for the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week."
