GREENSBURG — Ellinwood’s No. 1 singles Daphne Doll (4-1) captured the Kiowa County Tennis Invitational by winning four of five matches. Doll won two tiebreaker matches to capture first place in a thrilling fashion. 

Ellinwood’s No. 2 singles Kiley Troyer (3-1) finished in a three-way tie and placed runner-up with a 19-13 game record. 

No. 2 doubles Madisyn Schloctermeier and Grace Hoskins (2-3) finished third in a tiebreaker with a 14-13 game record.

No.1 doubles Wittney Hammeke and Monica Hammeke (2-2) placed fourth.

Kip Wilson, Jefferson Elementary principal, come by our practice for a motivational talk the day before the meet.  

“Kip used to be a member of the community, coach and athletic director for the district,” said Ellinwood coach Tyson revell. “It was a pretty cool moment for all of us.”

Ellinwood and Central Plains will compete Thursday at Great Bend.
