Bryson Clifford and Jacob Markley, seniors at Harrison County High School, will get a chance to compete for the tennis state championship next Thursday at the Hilary Boone Tennis Complex at the University of Kentucky.  The two each finished third in the region losing to the No. 1 seeds in the region on Monday afternoon.
Clifford battled Meredith Laskey of Highlands losing 0-6, 0-6 in sets that were much more contested than the score might indicate.  
Markley also was matched up with the boys’ No. 1 seed Ben Emery also from Highlands. Emery outlasted Markley, 1-6, 1-6, also in set play that was very competitive.
