The Iola High Fillies tennis team wrapped up a strong season at the 4A regional tournament in Independence Friday.

The Fillies brought one singles player and two doubles teams; each fell short of moving on to the state tournament with two of the teams ending up just a win away from advancing.

“In my 13 years of coaching we’ve had some girls get to that final match that would determine who advanced to the state tournament,” head coach Jenn Bycroft said. “It’s always a huge accomplishment to get there. I’m proud of the girls, their sportsmanship on the court and all they’ve been able to do this season.”
