PITTSBURG — Iola High’s tennis team got off to a flying start Monday, with junior varsity matches in Pittsburg.

The No. 1 doubles team of Sidney and Miah Shelby took first place overall, winning three matches in the process.

Keira Fawson won a pair of matches to take second in No. 1 singles.

Also competing, but unable to pick up any match victories were Andi Reynolds, in No. 2 singles play, and Genevive Ward and Rebekah Coltrane in No. 2 doubles.

“Everyone played well and had a good time,” Fillies head coach Chris Belknap said.

The Shelbys and Fawson will bump up to varsity play, starting today, with matches in Chanute.

Monday’s competition was originally slated to be hosted by Fort Scott High, but was moved to Pittsburg because Fort Scott’s tennis courts were unavailable.
