The first state tournament of the 2022-23 season is here.
The Emporia High girls tennis team will be sending three participants to the Class 5A state tournament.
Two of the three members, freshmen Kali Keough and Peyton Chanley will be making their debuts at state. Junior Ashlynn Foraker is making her second trip to state.
Keough earned a No. 2-seed in singles play after taking second in last week’s regional tournament at Emporia High.
Chanley and Foraker will be playing in their second tournament after taking sixth at regionals.
Chanley says they’ve learned more about each other during their preparations this week.
Foraker says she’s treating this like it’s a normal tournament.
Coach Saul Trujillo says he wants his three state qualifiers to enjoy their time at state.
Matches will be played at the Andover District Tennis Complex.
