For the first time in awhile, Aurora players took center court at the Class 5A girls state tennis tournament. Smoky Hill No. 1 singles player Anshika Singh and the Grandview No. 2 doubles team of Yehna Bendul and Rachel Cullop put the city in state championship matches for the first time in six seasons, though both fell short of bringing home a state title in lengthy three-set finals. The state finalists headline the 2017 Aurora Sentinel All-Aurora Girls Tennis Team, which is based primarily on results from the 5A state tournament at the Gates Tennis Center and/or season/regional performance.
