Whatever the case, Greenwood High School tennis player Jackie Kawamoto began seizing control of Saturday’s state singles championship match right around the time her mirror image arrived.
Jade Kawamoto, the elder of the identical twins by a few minutes, had been taking part in a tennis event at Carmel High School at 2 p.m., designated starting time of Jackie’s match against, ironically enough, a player from Carmel.
“I think it was 5-5 in the first set,” said Jade later of the time she showed up at Park Tudor High School, host of the IHSAA girls state finals in singles and doubles. “I was just nervous because I wanted to get back here as soon as I could. I was getting play-by-play on my phone as I drove.”
