SPENCER - Estherville Lincoln Central/Emmetsburg's Bailey Hagen wrapped up her high school career on Tuesday with a third-place match in the Class 1A Girls Tennis Regionals.
The match with Storm Lake's Lannie Brown determined who would be the state alternate for the region.
Hagen came up a bit short as she lost 6-2, 7-6 (7-3) to Brown. That placed her fourth in the region.
"We're definitely going to miss Bailey next year," said ELC/Emmetsburg coach Larry Kirchner.
Emmetsburg began sharing the girls' tennis program with ELC three years ago so that Hagen could play tennis. She has played varsity all three years and played the No. 1 spot most of the past two years.
ELC will return three letter winners next season-Maddy Burns, Samantha Rosinger and Emily Jorgenson.
