INDEPENDENCE — Iola’s Keira Fawson is headed to the Class 4A state tennis meet after finishing in fifth place at the regional meet in Independence Saturday.
Fawson knocked out teammate Rebekah Coltrane in the final match to claim a spot at state. Coltrane made it to the second round before a loss.
“Keira played very well at regionals,” said Iola head coach Chris Belknap. “She is very competitive and enjoys the sport so she works really hard. She stepped up her game when it was needed.”
