That leaves many question marks on the way to the 2021 Michigan high school girls tennis tournament, with the best juniors and seniors of 2019 graduating and leaving a void at the top.

The girls’ tennis regions are from May 19-22, with the final from June 4-5. Final locations are Lansing for Division 1, Midland for Division 2, Holland for Division 3 and Kalamazoo for Division 4.
