CHS tennis team wraps up season at regional tournament

MCPHERSON  — Concordia was unable to advance any of its entries in the Class 4A regional tennis tournament played Friday and Monday.
Danielle Timme, playing singles for the Panthers, was knocked out in the first round by Bailey Counterman, Circle, 6-3, 6-3.
“Danielle had a pretty good draw, but was not able to play her best tennis. After a poor start, losing the first five games, she played the Circle girl even,” Concordia coach Steven Mitchell said, “Danielle had a chance to get a lead in the second set, but struggled to get her serve in.”
Concordia’s Amanda Lawrence was beaten 9-5 by Sydney Breault, Circle, in a “play in” match.
“Amanda had a tough draw against Circle’s number two player. It was a good match, and Amanda made it very competitive. She was hitting the best ground strokes I have seen from her, but just made a few too many mistakes.”
Emily Trigg and Heather Letourneau, playing doubles for Concordia, lost 9-5 to Liz Minson and Mallory Olberding, Abilene.
“Emily and Heather had a decent draw, but were unable to beat the number two team from Abilene. They made it fairly close, but just didn’t have the consistent play that they need to win a big match.”
Siri McGuire and Ashley Adams were beaten in doubles play by Rachel Shogren and Ashley Weaver, 6-0, 6-1.
“Siri and Ashley went up against the number two seed in Hesston, and didn’t have the ability make it a close match. They were able to get a game, and felt that they played well.”
Shogren and Weaver went on to place third in the tournament.
McPherson won the team title with 16 points. Hesston finished second with 12 and Chapman was third with nine.
Ali Anderson, Hesston, captured the singles title. Jessica VanRanken, Smoky Valley, finished second and Allison Ivers, McPherson, was third.
Vikie Dukart and Jessica Steffen, Buhler, placed first in doubles.
Camry Holle and Emily Ediger finished second in doubles.
