In the scorching heat of the sun, the Wabaunsee journalism team headed out to conduct interviews and get pictures for a newspaper competition at the Kansas State Fair.
The tennis team opened its season Thursday at Wamego, with both singles players bringing home medals. Senior Mayah Mumpower went 4-0 to place first in #1 singles and sophomore Baylie Tharman went 2-2 to finish second in #2 singles. Though the team numbers are a little lower than usual, coach Brendan Praeger sees this as an opportunity to improve. “We graduated 7 people, so initially we dealt with small team issues. As we continued, this pushed players to work harder. These players can just get in more reps, and I’ve seen the younger players improve a lot more quickly than in previous seasons.”
Tennis enters the season with hopes to return some players to state and no large changes in protocols due to Covid-19.
WHS hits the courts at 3 p.m. Thursday in Wamego.
The Charger interviewed head coach Brendan Praeger and seniors Kendyl Bolinder and Reagan Feyh.
