DODGE CITY— It’s another undefeated mark for Great Bend senior Macy Moyers. Following last weekend’s unbeaten round robin performance in No 1. singles Moyers sailed through Thursday’s competition at Dodge City.

Great Bend’s Taylor Huslig and Carly Boyd had a big day finishing at 3-0 in No. 1 doubles. In the first round Huslig and Boyd defeated Liberal’s Jordyn Apsley and Tierra Stoney in an 8-3 decision. The two then downed Hannah Sowers and Adrianna Rodriguez of Dodge City, 8-2 and finished off Hays, 8-4. Sylina Zhang represented the first of two Hays’ players in No. 1 doubles while the other player for the Indians was not listed in the final results.

In the second flight of doubles play Rebecca Dawson and Rachel Carpenter recorded a third place finish of 2-1 after an opening round 8-5 victory over Garden City’s Sally Dinkel and Hayley Victor. Dawson and Carpenter then fell in an 8-3 decision to Ganbby Taliaferro and Brianna Forinash of Hays before defeating Liberal’s Kayla Tran and Cassy San Luis by a score of 8-4.

As a team the Panthers finished as runnerup behind Hays.

“We really came out and were ready to compete in this tournament,” coach Dustin Wheeler said. “I can honestly say as their coach they all left it on the court. They wanted to win not just for themselves but for their teammates and for that I’m very proud.”

Great Bend will take a breather before competing at Salina South on Thursday, September 24.
