Emery Sisters Represent FWA by Earning State Championship in Tennis Doubles

Faith West Academy sisters Madison Emery (sophomore) and Erika Emery (senior) breezed past New Braunfels Christian in straight sets to take the TAPPS 3A State Championship in tennis doubles. “The matches (6-2 and 6-0) were actually closer than the score reflected,” says Erika of the state finals. “The Warren sisters (Janae and Kendall) are good players. I have played Kendall in competitive leagues, and she had me worried. Faith West fans got behind us, and that made it wonderful. It gave us the edge. Even our principal, Mrs. Strickland, was there with a sign.”

The Emery sisters had an impressive season going undefeated in all sets of every match played. They have been dubbed the Super Champs in the tennis circuit. “Our dream had always been to play doubles together at state,” says Erika of the experience. Erika and Madison have been playing tennis since they were 8 and 6 years old, respectfully.

When the Emery sisters were younger, they said they were inspired by the Williams sisters. They understood from these athletes that it would take determination and practice to excel in the sport. They practiced over 20 hours a week under the direction of Peter Farrell of Willow Fork Tennis Shop to achieve their goal.

Erika and Madison are the daughters of Rocky and Julie Emery of Katy. They have a seventh-grade brother, Rocky Jr., who plays football.
