Tennis season ends at regionals

Although the WHS tennis season ended in regionals last week, coach Brendan Praeger said there was still a lot to celebrate this year. “Outside of one senior who had played for four years, we had a very inexperienced team this year, with three freshmen and three players who had played very little varsity. They made tremendous strides throughout the season and were all competitive at the end of the season,” Praeger said.

KSHSAA Advisory Team provides input from students

Each year six juniors across the state of Kansas are selected to be a part of the KSHSAA Student Advisory Team. Last year, I was one of the selected students and I currently serve as one of the 2A representatives. As a member of the team, part of my job is to provide input to the KSHSAA Executive Board, Board of Directors and Association staff about issues affecting students. 

Small tennis squad starts season with strong singles performance

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.”
