Special to the Leader & Times

Great Bend dominated every event and took team honors at the Great Bend Invitational Tennis Tournament on Saturday.  Competing teams included Dodge City, Garden City, Liberal, Eliinwood Hoisington, Sterling, and Great Bend.  Garden City took second place, Dodge City took third place, and Liberal started their season with a fifth place finish.

Individual Results:

No. 1 Singles — Joseph Cotto  went 1-5 on the day.  He broke a racquet string in the second match and never recovered from the equipment change.

No. 2 Singles — Mitchell Irby went 3-3 on the day.  He pushed  State-bound opponents to the end and will learn from this, his first varsity tournament.

No. 1 Doubles — Angel Hernandez and Buddy Buchanan went 0-6 on the day.  Playing in their first varsity tournament together, this team struggled against more-experienced teams.

No. 2 Doubles — Krunal Bumbaywala/Payton Grant went 2-4 on the day.  This young team gained valuable experience and completed the day with an exciting tie-breaker win over Dodge City.
