The Iola girls tennis team defended its home courts on Thursday with lights out performances from the Fillies’ doubles teams and their number two singles player, doing enough to land a first place finish overall.
“Without looking back through all of the records of my 12 years of coaching, I can’t for sure say how long it’s been since we’ve taken first place at our home tourney,” head coach Jenn Bycroft said. “I am so proud of the girls and their efforts. Each played with intensity, and even though most won by a huge margin, no one let up. They hustled after every ball, and I’m always glad to see them put shots away.”
The first place finish comes just a week after the Fillies finished second at the season opening tournament in Chanute.
