This was no time for the tandem of Kiyoko Hashimota and Vashnavi Koka to lose for the first time all year.

The Mountain Pointe sophomores made sure of it Saturday by winning the Arizona state title with a 15-5, 11-15, 15-13 victory at Glendale Indepenence High over the Chaparral team of Courtney Foltz and Alex Hoffman.

Hashimota and Koka didn't lose a match all season and were the No. 1 seed and that didn't changed against the Firebird's duo.
