This year our varsity tennis team’s NCKL meet was hosted in Chapman on Monday, October 5, 2019. Wamego, Concordia, Marysville, Clay Center, Chapman, and Abilene were all the teams that participated in the NCKL tournament.
Abilene’s number 1 singles, Shiann Olberding, went 5-0, the number 1 doubles, Maddie Beswick and Abi Lillard, went 5-0, the number 2 singles, Allison Cross, went 5-0, and the number 2 doubles, Maggie Gillispie and Bella Sims, went 5-0. This means that the team swept 1st place! Regionals will be Saturday, October 12, 2019. If Abilene places at regionals then state will be October 18, 2019. The season is quickly winding down, but these girls are still playing their hearts out and having a successful season!
“We have had a good season so far. The teams are different this year, which makes it fun because we get the opportunity to play new people. I am excited for regionals, but it’s bittersweet because the season is almost over.” remarked Bella Sims, jr.
