The tennis team placed second at the regional tournament hosted by St. James on Monday, May 6. Juniors Eric Howes and Joe Vincent placed fourth as a doubles team and qualified for state. Senior Rafa Seguro Trujillo placed second as a single and qualified for state.

Seniors Joey Perkins and Nathan Stacy also competed in doubles and junior Connor Mills competed in singles.

Tennis coach Eric Ammerman thinks that the ones who are going to state will do well.

“I think that [Trujillo] can finish in the top five [at state],” Ammerman said. “With [Howes] and [Vincent] it depends if they do their best. They need to reach their peak in order to win.”

Howes thinks that they played their best at regionals.

“It went well and we did what we needed to do,” Howes said.

Vincent agrees.

“The team we played had a great attitude and it was a good time,” Vincent said.

The ones who qualified for state will compete on Friday, May 10-Saturday, May 11 in Emporia.
