Special to the Dialy leader

Susan Nguyen proved to be one of the top 10 tennis players in Class 5A Girls’ State Tennis.

Nguyen competed Friday and Saturday in the State Girls’ Tennis Tournament in Wichita. She went 2-3 on the day earning a 10th place medal.

After receiving a first-round bye, she lost to Samantha Aleman from Gardner Edgerton 6-1,6-0. Nguyen bounced back to defeat Laurel Michel from Salina Central 9-3. Nguyen avenged an earlier loss to Salina Central by defeating Jordan Brown in a convincing 9-3 match.

Competing for ninth, Nguyen found herself matched against the No. 1 player from Hutchinson, Shayla Roath. Battling from a 1-4 deficit, Nguyen was serving at 5-6 to tie the match, but Roath prevailed winning 9-5.

Nguyen took home the 10th Place medal and put Liberal High School back on the tennis map.

“Susan’s game has improved to the point she can compete with any girl in the state,” Liberal coach Bret Irby said. “Her success has given Susan an added confidence that will sustain her for another run at the State title next year. We are all very proud of her accomplishments.”

Nguyen’s finish helped Liberal score five points at the state tournament for a 15th place overall finish.
