She beat Anna Walter of Thomasville in a close two-set match 6-3, 6-4 in the finals.

Thompson said Hosana, who dropped only one set throughout the tournament, had to battle weather issues.

“Hema was able to stay mentally tough during several rain delays and other questionable weather issues,” Thompson said.

“We are proud of all our Bainbridge tennis players, and the quality of play they bring each time to the courts.”
