Southwestern Heights Coach Defends Girls Playing on Boys Team
05/17/2012

Nefro Saucedo

Southwestern Heights doesn't have a girls tennis program.  But this spring, two Southwestern Heights girls played with the boys and against the boys at the state tennis tournament at Riverside in Wichita this past weekend.  Rebi Jacobs teamed with  Blake Stark in number one doubles while Whitney Garinger played with Richard Navarette in number two doubles.  Dalton Holmes played singles for the Mustangs.  Other than Meade, Southwestern Heights had the best tennis season around qualifying five of their six tennis players to state at regionals in Cimarron.  But last weekend head coach Nefro Saucedo said his team came under scrutiny for using female players at the boys tournament.  He says most of the complaints came from parents from some of the private schools.  He says most of the coaches were complementary of the way the kids competed and handled the situation.  Saucedo was a guest during the Sportsguys Wednesday morning.  To hear the interview, click on the audio icon.
