Iola High will be represented well this Saturday at state in Winfield for girl’s tennis. No.1 singles Carlie Payne along with the No.1 doubles pair of Allie Utley and Gabby Richards will represent the blue and gold. 

The 2019 season couldn’t have gone better for first-year coach Chris Belknap. 

“The team has made it super easy,” Belknap said. “I tell the girls all the time that I just carry a clipboard and tell them what to do. If I had anything to say, they would always listen.”
