LHS Tennis Headed to State
The Redskins send two more Nguyens to the 5-A State Tennis Championship in Emporia this week. Attaining the due respect from other schools in the state, the doubles team of Vince Nguyen and Duc Nguyen qualify for State with a 6th Place finish at Regionals held in Great Bend last Saturday. The top doubles teams in the state were heavily represented at the Great Bend Regional Tournament, but that did not stop the Nguyens from making their mark on school history.
