Special to Leader & Times

 

The Lady Redskin tennis team hosted a home tournament Saturday with seven teams competing-—Ashland, Scott City, Meade, and four teams from Liberal.

Twenty-four girls from LHS received the opportunity to gain valuable tournament experience in front of a home crowd.

To accommodate the attending schools, Ashland, Scott City, and Liberal’s Red team competed in a triangular varsity format while a Junior Varsity squad from Meade and three teams from Liberal competed in a Round Robin event.

Ashland took 1st Place Team honors with 18 points in the varsity competition followed by Liberal with 9 points.

Standout performances in the Round Robin event included senior Tania Sarabia going 3-0 and senior Ali Bowen finishing 2-1 in singles play.  For honors in doubles, the junior team of Kathy Hernandez and Katie Wehling went 3-0, and the team of Yuzby Torres and Ana Garcia also finished with a record of 3-0.
