The Lady Redskins finished 5th Place in the Great Bend Invitational Tennis Tournament on Saturday battling Mother Nature’s rain and much stiffer competition. Particpating teams included Great Bend, Ellinwood, Dodge City, Maize South, Garden City, Nickerson, and Wakeeney. Our girls got the opportunity to play against some real talent today, so our weaknesses were really exposed. This opens up the opportunity for learning and growth this coming week. The Lady Redskins travel to Dodge City on Thursday and Garden City on Saturday.
