Ada —      Three Ada High School seniors — Josh Ellis, John Stout and Margo Martin — earned Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State Tennis honors and will compete in the all-state matches on July 30 at Tulsa Union High School.

     Ellis was part of the Cougars’ No. 1 doubles team with Andrew Leach this past season. The pair rolled to a 22-7 record for the spring, including a perfect 4-0 run at the state tournament at the Oklahoma City Tennis Center. His efforts also helped fuel Ada to a Class 4A state team title.

     “As a freshman, at No. 1 singles, Josh played in a state elite tournament and finished 16th out of 16 players. The hard work he put in the last four years led to a state championship at No. 1 doubles,” said Ada head coach Skip Griese.
