The top four-seeded players advanced to the singles semifinals at the Class B girls state tennis tournament Thursday at Woods Tennis Center.

Norris' Crystal Craft, the fourth seed, outlasted Bennington's Kailee Bailey 3-6, 6-4 (10-6) in the quarterfinals at No. 1, while top-seeded Meena Satpathy only lost one game all day.

The Omaha Duchesne senior won a doubles title as a sophomore, and now will go for singles gold Friday.

Norris advanced both of its singles players to the semifinal round. Madeline Starr, the top seed at No. 2 singles, won her first two matches, including a 6-0, 6-1 win against Omaha Duchesne's Gabrielle Sjostedt.

She'll play Lincoln Christian's Molly Looper on Friday. The Crusader junior earned a 6-2, 6-2 win against Eva Behlen of Bennington in the quarters.

Norris' No. 1 doubles team of Isabel and Georgia Havel also advanced to the semifinal round after upending No. 2-seeded Olivia Koelter and Elsa Wilcox of McCook, 6-2, 6-2.

Norris and Omaha Duchesne are tied for the team lead with 34 points apiece. Grand Island CC and McCook are in the mix, too, with 30 points each.
