CHANUTE — A passing rain storm prompted a two-hour delay Thursday for Iola High’s tennis players Sam Fager and Ethan Riebel.

Even though the rains had moved on before the 1 p.m. start time, crews spent the better part of an hour cleaning water off the courts.

Then, came another wait for the surface to fully dry.
