Great Bend Panther Abbie Moyers serves up her unique style.


Great Bend's doubles partner Abbie Moyers enjoys her own unique style, even when she slipped against Dodge City. Like a champion, Moyers picked herself up with the help of No. 1 doubles partner Anna Popp.

Popp checked her partner's ankle and joined Moyers for three consecutive wins over Great Bend Red's Laura Daniel/Sahara Rhiza, 8-1, Hays High's Caroline Robben/Sage Zweifel, 8-0; and Dodge City's Becca Unruh/America Gamez, 8-2. 

Moyers/Popp (26-3) worked well together with each player taking their turn swatting winners at the net at Shannon Schartz courts. Moyers/Popp did a nice job getting ahead of their serves. They consistently broke their opponent's serves with solid play and fewer hitting errors in 85-degree temperatures. 

Great Bend's No. 1 singles Remi Ingram (3-0) and No. 2 doubles Madison Huslig/Grace Dougherty (3-0) each captured first by beating teams from Great Bend Red, Hays High and Dodge City.

Great Bend Red's No. 2 singles Dinah Newman downed her teammate McKenna Cape, 8-6 for first place.

Great Bend's Black team scored 28 points to finish first with Hays High (18) placing runner-up.
