Scott City duo places 9th at 3-2-1A State Tennis

A handful of players qualified for both the Class 6A and the Class 3-2-1A State Girls Tennis Championships this past weekend, but only one doubles team managed to make it to Day 2 of competition. And with that, ended up placing in the event.

The Scott Community doubles team of Isabela Gutierrez-Myers and Sadie Hermosillo ended up placing 9th at the tournament at the Harmon Park Tennis Courts in Prairie Village, near Kansas City.

The Beavers doubles team won their opening match, then lost in the second round to start their grind to a placement. Gutierrez-Myers and Hermosillo (33-6 on the season) won a pair of consolation-round matches to guarantee placing at the tournament, and allow them to play on Saturday.

Day 2 did not start as planned, as the tandem lost their first match to drop to the 9th-place bracket, but followed that up by rallying from six games down to win their next match in a tie-breaker. Gutierrez-Myers and Hermosillo would then take 9th place with a 9-5 pro-set win over Maggie Windholz and Nicole Hasse of Ellsworth.

No other players managed to make it to Saturday's play in either tournament, with Garden City seeing the deepest advancement in the Class 6A Tourmanent. Sadie Riggs in singles, and the doubles team of Carole Galia and Hannah Kipp each collecting a win in the consolation round before being eliminated.

In the 3-2-1A Tournament, the Meade doubles team of Monica Gleason and Alison Unruh won a consolation match, eliminating the Greeley County duo of Kyra Nolan and Karlyn Woelk in the process, before being eliminated.

Scott Community's other doubes team - Cynthia Gonzalez and Lanae Haupt - and singles player Abbigail LeBeau each won a pair of consolation matches before being eliminated on Friday.
