Briana Leonard’s high school tennis career is officially over.

The Bishop Guertin senior, who will graduate this weekend, will not play in Thursday’s NHIAA Girls Doubles Tournament semifinals.

Leonard and BG teammate Lauren Hayward were scheduled to play Londonderry’s Cassie Burbine and Amanda DePasquale.

Due to the emotional experience of Tuesday’s singles event – when, according to her parents, a “hostile environment” coupled with injuries led to Leonard retiring from the final match down one set to Bow senior Sunday Swett – Leonard has opted not to play in the doubles event.

“She has contusions on her legs and a slight sprain in her left wrist from when she fell during the match,” her father Tim Leonard said Wednesday night. “That’s the real reason she didn’t finish Tuesday. We were scared that she broke the same wrist she broke in the ninth grade. The other stuff was just over-the-top stuff that made things worse. But she’s in some pain, and it makes no sense to go back out there hurt.”

Burbine and DePasquale will now receive a bye into the championship match to face the winner of the other doubles match between Bow’s Swett/Nisha Naik and Bishop Brady’s Shelby Herrington/Maddy Moran.
