Western Albemarle junior tennis player Emily Kochard came up one match short of a state singles title.
Kochard lost 6-0, 6-2 to Hidden Valley senior Ceyda Durmaz on Thursday in the championship match of the Group AA singles tournament in Blacksburg. It's the first state singles title of Durmaz's career.
Kochard advanced to the title match with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Leah Walter of Jamestown in Thursday morning's semifinals.
Kochard and her Western teammates still have a shot at the Group AA team title. The Warriors face E.C. Glass at 9 a.m. Friday at Virginia Tech.
