Accomplishments: Craft and Carly Holtgraves teamed up for a dominant run through last week’s SPSL 3A tennis tournament, capped by last Friday’s 6-0, 6-1 victory against Auburn’s Peyton Prothero and Mariah Siemion in the girls doubles title match. Craft and Holtgraves won 48 of the 52 games they played in the tourney.

Favorite class: Psychology.

If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite Jim from “The Office” and would serve toast.

CARLY HOLTGRAVES

AUBURN RIVERSIDE

Grade: Senior.

Accomplishments: Holtgraves gained a share of her second straight SPSL 3A girls doubles championship as she and Caroline Craft defeated Auburn’s Peyton Prothero and Mariah Siemion last week, 6-0, 6-1. Last year, Holtgraves and now-graduated partner Jessica Grover won the crown.

If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I’m not sure whom I would invite, but I definitely would serve ice cream and Oreos.
