Milton's Krajcovicova in state tennis semifinals
When the girls tennis season was halfway complete, Lea Krajcovicova did not fully understand what the WIAA state championship was all about. She does now. The Milton High foreign-exchange student from Slovakia won three matches Friday to advance to the semifinals today at the WIAA Division 1 girls tennis championships at Nielsen Tennis Stadium. Krajcovicova takes a 27-0 record into her 9 a.m. semifinal match Saturday against No. 3 seed Lily Hayes of Whitefish Bay (20-4). The No. 7-seeded Krajcovicova upset No. 2 seed Mardee Merar of Homestad, 6-4, 6-3, in the quarterfinals. Krajcovicova, a junior, finished off her quarterfinal win with a rocket forehand down the line.
