It is the second consecutive WHC doubles title for Harris while the first for Griffin, who won the WHC singles crown last season as a freshman.
Polk County’s Sara Musa and Ava Marino won their opening doubles match, 8-2, but fell 8-2 to Rice and Betz in the quarterfinals.
Jenne, Harris and Griffin all earned a spot in the 1A West Regional tournament, set for Oct. 19-20 in Elkin. The top four finishers there will advance to the state tournament on Oct. 26-27 in Cary.
