Melissa Coburn has been a top performer for the Coppell Tennis program for four years, and she completed her great Coppell career with a finish as Regional Semi-Finalist last week at the Arlington Tennis Center.
Melissa, surprisingly unseeded after her District Championship Tourney win, showed with her play that her lack of seeding was probably an over-sight by the tournament folks.
After a split set win over Allen in the first round, Melissa kept the momentum with nice straight set win in the Quarter-Finals over the top player from Amarillo Tascosa.
This win set up a difficult match-up in the Semi-Finals against the No. 1 Seed from El Paso Coronado.
Melissa, facing the top seed who had lost only 2 total games in the first two rounds, quickly challenged the favorite. However, even after winning twice as miany games as previous competitors, Melissa's challenge was met by the very good player from El Paso.
