KSHSAA TENNIS - 2020-2021

STATE TENNIS TOURNAMENTS COMPLETED - STRAIGHT SET VICTORY OVER MOTHER NATURE!
Try as she may – Mother Nature was not able to delay the 4 state tournaments from finishing as scheduled on May 15. Friday weather was good for the 4A and 6A sites (Topeka and Prairie Village), however, Maize (5A) and Wichita (3-2-1A) were an hour late starting and each had a weather interruption early afternoon. All sites experienced rain Saturday morning but were back on the courts at high noon or shortly thereafter and able to finish that evening. Many lessons were learned along with great experiences –

  1. Radar showing no storm cells can still produce rain.
  2. The life expectancy of a court squeegee was put to the test and survived.
  3. Teamwork received high marks as parents, coaches, etc. treated courts throughout the tournaments.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL STATE QUALIFIERS
After 288 state qualifiers played 348 matches in which 864 tennis balls were used, following are the top 3 teams per site:
6A – 1. Shawnee Mission East - 47; 2. OP-Blue Valley NW – 29; 3. Manhattan – 25.
5A – 1. Salina Central – 40 ; 2. Maize-South – 37 ; 3. Maize – 27.
4A – 1. Independence – 36 ; 2. McPherson – 34 ; 3. Buhler – 25.

THANKS TO TOURNAMENT HOSTS
The KSHSAA would like to extend a special thanks to our tournament hosts for a job well done. Hosting a state tournament is a large undertaking in and of itself. But add inclement weather to the event and things can get interesting and days get very long. We appreciate their flexibility, constant communication with coaches and so many extras that became a part of the tournament. Thanks to Shawnee Mission East HS (Debbie Katzfey), Maize South (Curtis Klein), Topeka-Hayden (James Sandstrom) and Merri Copeland, Susan Oldfather, Rhonda Holt, Lori Heger, Karla Stenzel, Kim Morrissey and Meggin DeMoss on a job well done!

2021 SEASON
Congratulations once again to all players and coaches on completing the 2021 season. After no interscholastic tennis in 2020, it was wonderful to provide this exciting opportunity for our student athletes.

ONLINE RECORDS FOR ALL PLAYERS
Coaches, once the season has concluded for your players, it is suggested you complete their season records on line. Add results from all postseason tournaments, etc. These records will be archived on our website for future viewing.

THANKS FOR WHAT YOU DO FOR KANSAS STUDENTS
As I end this last newsletter of the season and the last one as the tennis administrator at the KSHSAA, I would like to thank all of you for the time, energy and dedication you provide for your student athletes. School activities are an important part of a students educational experience. The life lessons they experience are too many to list – winning, losing, the rewards of hard work, self-confidence, teamwork, persistence, never giving up, playing by the rules, discipline and so many more – this experience will help mold and shape them to be adults we can be so proud of. What you do matters more than you’ll ever know. And for that I thank you and wish you continued success.
