The Chelsea girls’ tennis team breezed through the competition at Haslett Wednesday as the Bulldogs rolled to the Regional title and move on to the Division 3 state finals.

The Bulldogs did not lose a set all day and won all eight flights on the way to the title.

Chelsea finished with 24 points, easily outdistancing second place St. Johns with 14.

While all the Bulldogs were impressive on the day, Anne-Marie Begola dominated her way to the four-singles win without losing a game in three matches. She won all three matches 6-0, 6-0 to cruise to the flight win.

Rachel Bareis was almost as impressive at three-singles with a 6-1, 6-0 win in the opening match and winning 6-0, 6-0 in her other two matches.
