Mid-Pacific’s Skyla Alcon proved she can do it on her own if she has to.
The senior upset defending champion Taylor Lau 6-4, 6-3 to secure the girls singles title in the Carlsmith Ball / HHSAA State Tennis Championships at Central Oahu Regional Park.

Lau knows all about how upsets happen, she beat three-time champ Alyssa Tobita of Mililani in the final last year.
Punahou’s Kawika Lam wasn’t about to get upset, beating Hawaii Baptist’s Jeffrey Liang 7-5, 6-3 for his third straight boys singles title. He ties a record set from 1975-77.
Top seeds Jordan Azuma and Phuc Hyunh of Iolani secured the boys doubles title with a 7-6(7), 6-4 win over Austin Hamamoto and Travis Lau of Punahou.
Punahou duo Katreina Corpuz and Alyssia Fossorier upset Sarah Ikioka and Kylee Kato of Kamehameha-Maui for the girls doubles title.
Punahou predictably swept both team titles, the 25th straight for the boys and the 13th in a row for the girls.
