LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) - The Jennings sisters, Rachel and Whitney have dominated the basketball court at Logansport in their high school careers. The two sisters helped lead the Berries to a 25 and 2 record this season, which included their first sectional title since 2007. But what you may not know, is the two sisters also dominate the tennis court as well.
"When I went in to sixth grade, I went to a tennis camp here with my friend," said Rachel. "I had just started and Whitney wanted to do it too. So, then after that my parents said if you two are going to play tennis in high school then you are going to practice. So, we played every day."
Whitney, a junior, plays one singles and is currently undefeated on the season. Rachel, a senior, plays two singles for the Berries tennis team. The two sisters helped lead Logansport to a 14-3 regular season record.
"I had a pretty good year," said Whitney. "I was able to go undefeated in the regular season and we start sectionals this week. I am looking forward to carrying it over in to sectionals."
"We have had a really good year," said Rachel. "So, sectionals would be great to go out with."
Nothing has changed though from the basketball court to the tennis court for Whitney and Rachel. The two still love to compete.
"Rachel actually got started playing tennis before me," said Whitney. "For a while, she beat me most of the time and then I got to the point where I was beating her consistently. That I think upset her for a while but she has gotten over it. We are teammates in everything that we do. So, we support each other."
"I am definitely the least competitive of my family," said Rachel. "I try not to play Whitney one-on-one but we could play each other in tennis and be fine. I can play with her at times, just not always."
Whitney and Rachel are focused on leading the Berries to their third straight sectional title this week.
