HESSTON – Central Plains Oiler Peyton Ryan downed Wichita Collegiate’s Charlie Gentile 8-6 to capture the singles championship at Tuesday’s Hesston Tennis Tournament. Ryan (22-0) is a 2-time 3-1A state runner-up. Ryan placed runner-up at state and Gentile finished third last year.

Camden Stiles (17-6) finished fourth. Stiles won 8-6 over Smoky Valley’s Keaton Leiker, last year’s ninth-place finisher. Paxton Dody/Peyton Dody (16-8) placed 10th. Nethan Cauthon/Alden Metro (17-6) placed 15th.

“It was definitely the toughest meet we’ve played at,” said Oiler coach Michael Ryan. “There was tons of good competition. We played pretty well. We’ll keep battling and continue to improve before postseason."

The Oilers compete at Pratt Friday.
