INDEPENDENCE — Iola High’s Genevive Ward and Andi Reynolds teamed up for the first time on the tennis court Monday at a junior varsity meet hosted by Independence High School.

The duo showed signs of progress, head coach Chris Belknap said, in going 0-3 on the afternoon, falling by scores of 6-1, 6-5 (in a tiebreak) and 6-0.

Not only was it the first time Ward and Reynolds had paired up, it was the first time Reynolds had ever played a doubles match, Belknap said.
