Special to the Leader & Times

Garden City took first place honors as a team on Tuesday with 36 total points. Ulysses followed with 25 points as a team followed by Dodge City with 16, who barely beat out Liberal who had 14 points, good enough for a fourth-place finish. 

“Liberal played a bunch of new girls in the home tournament and they all got great experience for future tournaments and future years on the tennis team,” Liberal junior varsity coach David Short said.

Liberal Black Team

No. 1 Singles — Freshman Priscilla Vasquez went 3-1 on the day finishing second. Vasquez has played a total of five high school tournaments and has taken second place in four of them, losing each of those to Garden City in the finals.

No. 2 Singles — Senior Citlali Rocha went 0-3 on the day. This was her first tournament in singles.

No. 1 Doubles — Seniors Evelyn Rios and Elizabeth Luebbers went 2-2 which was good enough to get them a third place finish in their final home tournament.

No. 2 Doubles — Cruz Quirino and Lupita Silverio finished the day 1-2.

Liberal Red Team

No. 1 Singles — Senior Kelyn Melendez played her first tournament as a singles player and took fourth place. She lost a tough match in a tie-breaker to Ulysses who wound up with third place. Her only other loss was to the eventual first-place Garden City girl in a hard fought match.

No. 2 Singles — Freshman Romina Gonzales played very well in the tournament. She finished 1-2 but played very tough.

No. 1 Doubles — Freshmen Riddhi Bombaywala and Elena Camacho played very well together in their first tournament. They finished 1-2 and gained valuable experience for the future.

No. 2 Doubles — Emilse Monarez and Tanya Arcos had a tough day and finished 0-3. This was their first tournament together.

“There were a few other LHS girls sprinkled throughout the tournament playing for some open spots other schools had,” Short said. “This got them all some great experience, and if the young girls continue to play, it could be a bright future for Lady Redskin Tennis.”
