PRATT ? The Iola High School Class of 2019 crossed the stage and got their diplomas Saturday afternoon and while the vast majority got to throw up their caps in celebration once it was all over, there was one senior Mustang who was not in attendance.
Senior Bret Plumlee and his junior tennis doubles partner Elijah Fawson were in Pratt, competing in the 4A Tennis State Championship Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
The two Mustangs made Plumlee?s missing his graduation worth it though, as they battled through both days of the tournament to end the season with a 3-4 record and 12th place overall.
