- All six Carlisle entries in the Mid-Penn Girls Tennis Championships advanced to Friday's Class 3A final rounds. Meg Ulrich, Olivia Gorak-Lacquement and Sarah Guistwite used first-round byes to springboard into quarterfinal victories and therefore make the semis. Each won in straight sets and were hardly threatened. Two of the Thundering Herd doubles teams advanced to the semifinals as well, while the District Doubles pair of Ulrich/Gorak-Lacquement advanced to Friday's quarters.
- Joining Ulrich in Singles 1's final quartet are Central Dauphin's Alexa Schwab, Cedar Cliff's Kali Aughenbaugh and Cumberland Valley's Vaishnavi Datta. CV's Lauren Noss made the Singles 2 semis, and she advanced with Datta in District Doubles as well. Aughenbaugh and Lauren Giovagnoli face the Herd's District Doubles pair. The Eagles' D1 pair also made it to Friday.
- In Class 2A, East Pennsboro's Ava Lewis beat teammate Madison Poladian to make the Singles 1 championship Friday, where she'll face James Buchanan's Maggie Strawoet. Camp Hill's Diana Ryder won her semifinal to make the Singles 2 championship against Bishop McDevitt's Maria Gontis. And Panther Bella Heckman will face Ellan Jones (JB) in the S3 championship after a semi win over Trinity's Maria Ferraro.
- The Class 2A doubles scene was also Panther-heavy. Lewis and Poladian are in Friday's semis after a first-round bye and will face Shamrocks pair Saide Rieg and Maya Arora. Loreal Thompson and Jordan Peskie made the Doubles 1 championship and will face JB's Lindsey Meyers and Kierra Griffith. Their teammates, McKenna Nugent and McKenna Borrell beat the Camp Hill Doubles 2 pairing to make Friday's final against McDevitt's Kathrina and Monique Garbanzos.
