Very hot day today but some very good teams here. Buhler is ranked 2nd in 4A, Conway Springs 3rd in 321A, Sacred Heart 4th in 321A, and Wellington 4th in 4A. We finished 3rd as a team where I expected.
Couple of new freshman filled in Jensen Lynnes at #2 singles and went 2-2 good for 3rd. Eventually she ran out of steam, a little bit longer matches that in middle school and she had some really long points.
Natalie Henning battled hard in one of the toughest spots at #1 singles and had to play a 3rd place finisher at state Perrin, then a 5th place finisher at state with Frederick, and another state qualifier in May. She played hard throughout.
#1 doubles Aufdengarten and Rusk fell behind their last match 3-0, then 4-1, and mounted a rally taking an 6-4 lead eventually beating Conway Springs 7-5 to go 4-0 and finish 1st on the day. That Conway Springs team finished 3rd at state in 321A last season. #2 doubles Brand and Reichenberger went 1-3 in their first varsity action beating Sacred Heart and playing the eventual champion from Buhler to 7-5.
