Samma Zahran’s outstanding first foray into high school varsity tennis just got a little better.

Zahran defeated Archbishop Carroll’s Celia Frohner, 6-0, 6-1, in the first round and scored a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, victory over Archbishop Ryan’s Laurie Flemm in the second round to win the championship and advance to the District 12 tourney Oct. 24 at Legacy.

In the District 1 team tournament:
