In the semifinal match, the Generals duo defeated Henry Clay's Atwood/Mays by a score of 6-4, 6-2. In the finals, Gillespie/Harris defeated Henry Clay's other doubles entry Hughes/Yurkoski by a score of 6-4, 7-6 (7-4).
Gillespie and Harris will now set their sights on the KHSAA state tennis tournament which starts on Thursday May 16 at Shillito Park and the University of Kentucky. This will be their 3rd consecutive trip to the state tournament.
