#2 Singles Kami Reichenberger went 5-0 winning the championship!!
Wellington at Pratt this weekend in a 10 team invitational finished 1st overall as a team.
Here is Coach Brian Aufdengartens’ Invitational wrap-up.
#1 Singles Ashlyn Gerten lost her opening match over a state qualifier from last year from Larned 6-8. She won her second match 8-0 over Chaparral. Then she ran into Kingman who finished 4th at 321A state last year and lost 2-8 but played very well losing several deuce games. She then went on to beat a state qualifier from Greeley County 8-4, and another state qualifier from Kiowa County 8-2. Gerten finished 4th overall which I was very pleased with.
#2 Singles Kami Reichenberger was Wellington’s top medalist going 5-0 on the day and winning the championship. She started in pool play beating Lyons 8-3, and Greeley County 8-1. She then played Pratt in a cross bracket match and won 8-0. In the championship pool she beat Lyons again 8-1, then beat a state qualifier from Larned 8-4. This is Reichenberger’s second straight tournament to medal in.
#1 Doubles was Jensen Lynnes & Lyric Cornejo with Wellington mixing it’s lineup up a bit from the first two meets. Lynnes and Cornejo beat Lyons 8-2 and Greeley County 8-0 to start off. In cross bracket play the pair beat Ashland 8-0. In the championship pool they ran into a Sterling team that had a 3rd place and 8th place finisher at state last season and fell behind 0-5 to start and ended up losing 3-8. The Wellington pair beat Larned 8-1 in the final match to finish 4-1 on the day for 2nd place.
#2 Doubles was Olivia Brand & Crystal Ramirez who had a very good day also going 4-1. They opened up pool play beating Larned 8-4 and Chaparral 8-2. In cross bracket play they beat Pratt 8-1. Much like the #1 doubles team Brand and Ramirez met a tough Sterling team who both went to state last season and lost 2-8. They beat Ashland 8-6 to secure 2nd place on the day.
Wellington will have a makeup meet on Monday at home @ 3PM (9th St. Courts).
