Special to the Daily Leader

The Redskins sent two more Nguyens to the Class 5A State Tennis Championship in Emporia this week.

Attaining the due respect from other schools in the state, the doubles team of Vince Nguyen and Duc Nguyen qualified for State with a sixth place finish at the regional tournament in Great Bend Saturday.

The top doubles teams in the state were heavily represented at the Great Bend Regional Tournament, but that did not stop the Nguyens from making their mark on school history.

Following the fall accomplishments of friend and State medalist Susan Nguyen, Vince and Duc Nguyen will face the best Class 5A talent in Emporia Friday and Saturday in an attempt to bring more State tennis medals to Liberal High School.  The entire Redskin tennis team competed hard.

Individual results:

Singles — Larcyn Carter lost to Salina South’s Zach Lantz 1-6, 3-6.

Antonio Rodriguez lost to McPherson’s Max Pyle 1-6, 2-6.

Doubles — Hai Vo and Josh Hamilton lost to Hutchinson’s Lucero/Mckee 1-6, 1-6 .

Duc Nguyen and Vince Nguyen defeated Hays’ Beougher/Glassman 6-0, 6-0; lost to Hutchinson’s Lucero/McKee 4-6, 0-6; defeated Newton’s Taylor/Kingley 6-2, 6-2; then lost to McPherson’s Singleton/Horton 4-6, 3-6 earning the sixth place medal and a trip to the Class 5A State Tennis Championships in Emporia Friday.
