Weston sophomore Kimmy Guerin made it look easy. Again. Guerin won her second straight Connecticut State Interscholastic Athletic Association girls tennis crown Wednesday with a 6-0, 6-1 win over seventh-seeded Hannah Dahlem. Guerin, the top seed, breezed through the tournament without dropping a set.
In her first three matches, Guerin advanced without dropping a game. She rolled past Lauren Schmidt of South Windsor, Joan Li of East Lyme and Bianka Horvath of Newington. She took out Danbury's Lindsey Post, 6-1, 6-2, in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, Guerin swept New Canaan's Courtney Gallagher, 6-0, 6-1.
Guerin also led Weston to the Class S team championship. Westhill's Vanessa Petrini (2008-2009) won back-to-back Open titles, as did Trinity Catholic's Chaz Saricas (2001-2002). Guerin could match former Immaculate of Danbury star Patti Murren, who won four straight Open titles from 1989-92.
According to the website tennisrecruiting.net, Guerin is ranked second in New England and 41st in the nation. She trains out of the Intensity Club in Norwalk.
