Qin Nebgen was nominated by her coach as the top and only female player for Cicero to compete for a draw for an AIA State Tennis singles berth. When the coaches at the 2a level voted for the top 24 players, Qin was selected for State. This was a huge honor for Qin and Cicero in their first year of AIA competition.
Last Friday Qin competed against a singles player from Thatcher and fell in her match 6-0, 6-0. While she did not register a point in the match, she hung in there the whole time. She competed in rallies that went 5-10 strokea long and Qin made her opponent work for every point. Great job Qin, we are proud of your efforts and your representation of Cicero!
