Central Plains Oilers win Trego tennis title

WAKEENEY — Central Plains’ two-time 3-1A state runner-up Emily Ryan (21-0) stayed unbeaten by winning two matches at Saturday’s Trego Tennis Invitational. A scheduled championship match against Victoria’s Brooklyn Kuhn was canceled due to inclement weather.

Ryan has lost five games in 21 matches. The Oilers scored 33 points to place first ahead of WaKeeney-Trego (27). Ryan won 8-0 games over Trego’s Gracie Hickson and Phillipsburg’s Caroline Brungardt. 

Central Plains No. 1 doubles Bryanna Hammeke-Kyla Metro (19-3) beat Hoisington’s Brooke Steinert-Kelsi Dalton last week in a championship match at Claflin. But weather canceled the scheduled championship match. Each team won three matches to reach the finals. 

Central Plains Oilers Zoe-Potter Jennah Jeffrey (19-5) placed third with a 5-2 victory over Norton’s Shelby Harting-Dylan Hawks. Hammeke-Metro beat their teammates 8-4 in the semifinal round.
