The Wellington tennis team had a busy week of tennis, having five matches this week from Monday to Saturday. The JV team was in action on Monday at El Dorado and the team finished first overall.  The top finish was the number two doubles team of Alyra Koerner and Jordan Koehn going 3-0 for first.  Number one doubles team of Scout and River Douglas finished 2nd going 2-1.  Number one singles player Kendall Janzen also finish second overall going 2-1 on the day.  Breonna Chamberlain playing in her second meet ever also had her first victory taking third place.  

The JV tennis team was also in action on Tuesday at Winfield and finished first as a team there as well.  Wellington was led by number two singles player Scout Douglas as well as #1 doubles of Heidi Gulick and Kyra Cornejo.  All of these girls finished 3-0 good for first place.  Sawyer Parkey went 2-1 at number one singles to finish second.  Alyra Koerner and Emma Stover finished 3rd at #2 doubles.  

Also on Tuesday the varsity team traveled to Goddard and had some decent results. The number one doubles team of Lyric Cornejo and Jensen Lynnes finished second overall in the tournament. They opened play beating a good Maize team 8–3.  In their next pool play match they lost to Goddard Eisenhower 6-8. The pair ended in a three-way tie but had the highest winning percentage so they made the championship match.  Wichita Collegiate came out on fire during the match and beat the Wellington pair 8–2. That match might be the best we’ve played this year but that team was geared up I think the girls felt that we played very well also. Playing at the number to double spot was Crystal Ramirez and Jordyn Brown who finished 2–1 on the day and took third place. The pair lost their first match to Maize, then they beat Goddard Eisenhower and Wichita Collegiate in the finals.  Wellington did not have a number one singles player because she was sick and playing number two singles was Addie Hinshaw, who is playing in her varsity meet on the year.

Wellington‘s top finisher was Kami Reichenberger who won her first round match in a tiebreak over a Maize South player.  Reichenberger went 3–2 on the day good for 14th place.  That is a great day for Kami really proud of how far she has come in the last three years.  Wellington’s doubles team of Ashlyn Gerten and Kadynce  Aufdengarten went 3-2 on the day good for 21st place.  Wellington‘s other singles player Logan Robinson went 2-3 on the day good for 22nd Place.  The doubles team of Lyric Cornejo and Jensen Lynnes also went 3–2 on the day good for 25th place.  Wellington finished 13th overall as a team.
