Foresters Compete at State Singles Tournament

Senior Quinn Jagodzinski was the runner-up in the Women's B Division and one of 13 Foresters competing at the Illinois Handball Association State Singles Tournament at the Glass Court Swim and Fitness Club in Lombard over the weekend.

Jagodzinski rattled off three consecutive victories, including a 21-17, 21-10 decision in the semifinals over Lake Forest junior Annabeth Gibbons, to reach the bracket's championship match. There she was defeated 21-15, 21-10. Gibbons defeated classmate Monica Redfern 21-14, 21-11 in the quarterfinals and two other Foresters, senior Quinn Matuschek and junior Marketa Riley, were also quarterfinalists in the same division.

Junior Riley Frisbie fell in the opening round of the Women's Open Division but posted back-to-back victories in the Men's C/Novice bracket to reach the semifinals, where she was defeated by the eventual champion. Sophomore Jacob Czarapata was also a semifinalist and junior Brandon Sanchez was Frisbie's opponent in the quarterfinals.

The only Forester in the Men's A Division, junior Chandler Straw, was victorious in the round of 16 before being eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Lake Forest will host a Women's Invitational Singles event next Saturday in the Sports and Recreation Center.
