Pueblo Central’s Guzman has best finish at girls state tennis tournament

Isabella Guzman turned in a stellar performance at the Class 3A state high school girls tennis championships at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs.

Playing at No. 3 singles, the Pueblo Central freshman won her first two matches to reach the semifinals before falling. She also won a challenge back and played for third place in her classification di lei.

In an all-freshman match, Sydney Lewis of Peak to Peak defeated Guzman for third place 6-1, 6-0 Saturday morning. Guzman finished fourth, quite a feat for her first appearance di lei at state.

“No, I didn’t think I’d make it this far,” said Guzman, who also plays softball, basketball and volleyball. “I had good coaching. I really wanted it. It feels good, exciting, really happy about it. Kind of surprised.”
