Coach Chris Belknap’s first season in charge of the girls’ tennis team at Iola High was a major success. The Fillies concluded their season at the state tournament in Winfield last weekend.

Three Fillies advanced to the state, including No. 1 singles Carlie Payne, and the No. 2 doubles pair of Allie Utley and Gabby Richards.  

Payne bowed out of the tournament after losing both of her matches. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic season for Payne. Having played doubles the majority of her career, Payne switched to singles action. Clearly a trip to state showcased the hard work she put in the off-season.
