HAYS — Taking on the likes of Western Athletic Conference opponent Hays High School, along with a solid Abilene tennis team, Great Bend breezed past the opposition on Monday at the eight-team Hays Invitational.
“The team played well and continues to show improvement,” GBHS head coach Shannon Schartz said. “The entire Abilene team had only lost three matches all year and finished first in three tournaments until today.”
The Panthers’ No. 1 doubles team (Austin Jacobs and Chase Buntain), along with No. 2 doubles (Adam Neeland and Patrick McCluskey) and No. 2 singles player Grant Harris, went undefeated in capturing second place in their respective divisions.
Harris and the aforementioned doubles teams all finished 3-0.
Nick Moyers placed second in No. 1 singles for the Panthers, finishing 2-1.
