HHS tennis third at home

Hays High School senior Nicholas Glassman saw a world of improvement between last year and this year in his doubles play.

The Indian senior finished third this year at the Hays High Invitational on Monday in No. 1 doubles with his partner, sophomore Andrew McGinnis, going 3-1. Last season, Glassman took sixth in No. 2 doubles with partner Gustavo Reyes.

Glassman said he and McGinnis make a good team.

They first partnered together last year for the post-season when his previous partner couldn't make the league meet, and Glassman and McGinnis practiced together throughout the summer.

"I think we've gotten a lot better as a team," Glassman said.

Glassman and McGinnis helped Hays High finish third at its home meet with 21 points.

Great Bend and Abilene were first and second with 31 and 28, respectively. Scott City (19), Liberal (18), Russell (13), WaKeeney-Trego Community (8) and Hays High's junior varsity (3) rounded out the rest of the team scoring.

"I didn't really have an expectation," said first-year Hays High coach Megan Quinley. "I didn't really know what (many of) the other teams would be like since I hadn't seen them play, but after seeing the competition level and seeing that we got third, I'm proud of (third)."

It was Quinley's first time running a meet. She said it was hectic at first.

"Getting everything together (was difficult), but once it got started, I had a lot of help behind me and it went very smooth," Quinley said. "The guys helped a lot."

Senior Cody Brown took third in No. 1 singles, going 3-1. His only loss was to Great Bend's Nick Moyers by an 8-1 score. Brown defeated Scott City's Tyler Yeadon 8-3 in the third-place match.

Great Bend took first in all but one bracket -- No. 1 singles -- which Moyers took second behind Abilene's powerhouse player Mathew Barlow, who steamrolled to the meet championship.

"(Great Bend has) a lot of upperclassmen, and they have a really good coach," Brown said.

Hays High senior Bayron Rivera took fourth at No. 2 singles, going 2-2.

He lost to Liberal's Mitchell Irby 8-1 in the third-place match.

The Indians' No. 2 doubles team of junior Austin Berry and freshman Michael Ploutz placed fifth, finishing 2-2. They defeated a team from Liberal 2-2 in the fifth-place match.

Brown said he was thankful the sun came out to help dry the tennis courts from the morning's rain, because playing at home was definitely a plus.

"It's just nice being in your home atmosphere and having your home crowd," he said.

Top area finishes

Russell's No. 1 doubles team of seniors Regis Weiss and Nick Sells took fifth at the HHS Invitational, going 2-2 and winning 8-5 against Scott City's No. 1 team. Russell's No. 2 doubles team of senior Clayton Moubry and junior Isaiah Stierlen placed fourth, finishing 2-2.

Trego's Isaiah Fabrizius produced his squad's top finish, placing sixth in No. 1 singles.
