OREM -- Ogden High's Abbey Anjewierden had so much fun winning the state girls doubles championship a year ago, she went out and did it again.

Anjewierden teamed up with sister Nicole to win the state 4-A championship at No. 1 doubles last season. This season -- with Ogden in the 3-A ranks -- Anjewierden teamed with Meredith Tribe for the season. Weather pushed the semifinals and finals to Monday at Timpanogos High School.

The Tigers duo topped a Judge Memorial squad in the semifinals 6-1, 6-1, then took on Snow Canyon's Abbey Hafen and Madi Harrison in the final.

Ogden's duo easily won 6-2, 6-3 to secure the state championship.

Ogden's Emily Sheffield and Tessa Welsh had a chance to match their teammates at No. 2 doubles. In Monday's semifinals, Sheffield and Welsh tangled with Park City's Natalie Frost and Lauren Weed, and jumped out to a 6-0 win before falling 7-5, 6-2.

Judge Memorial won the team title with 24 points, with Snow Canyon next. Ogden tied for third overall.

The 3-A finals wrapped an impressive state tournament finish for Top of Utah teams, with St. Joseph claiming the title at the 2-A/1-A ranks, Bountiful and Woods Cross tying for second at the state 4-A level, and Davis finishing third overall at the state 5-A level.
