#1 Singles Ashlyn Gerten was in a top loaded field, she won her first match, then ran into the state runnerup in 5A and the 4th place finisher in 5A. Gerten finished 4th.
#2 Singles Olivia Brand ended up getting the top seed and lived up to it winning all 3 matches for 1st place.
#1 Doubles Rylee Rusk & Calli Hatfield won their first two matches easily, then ran into a pretty good Collegiate team in the finals and lost 6-8 to finish 2nd.
#2 Doubles Jensen Lynnes & Lyric Cornejo got the #2 seed and struggled through their first match but won over Goddard, then beat a Kapaun team in the semi finals, before losing to the #1 seed from Salina Central, to finish 2nd.
