Junior Sage Riggs suffered her first loss of the season to the No. 1 player from Goddard-Eisenhower in an 8-5 score, but won her other three matches over Andover (8-4), Dodge City (8-1) and Campus (8-0) to improve her season record to 16-1.

Brooke Ptacek went 2-2 and finished second with wins over Goddard-Eisenhower, 8-5; and Campus, 8-1; and falling in matches against Andover, 8-4; and Dodge City, 8-4.

The No. 1 doubles team of Ashleigh Chappel and Sydney Nanninga went 3-1 in their runner-up effort. They lost to Andover, 8-6; defeated Dodge City, 8-4; Godard-Eisenhower, 8-5; and Campus, 8-1.

Rilee McGraw and Chloe Powell also finished the day with a 3-1 mark and a second-place standing in No. 2 doubles. They lost to Andover, 8-4, but then rolled to wins over Dodge City (8-2), Goddard-Eisenhower (8-5) and Campus (8-6).

“The girls played hard and everyone got big wins over Campus, a regional opponent, in the last round,” said first-year head coach Logan Bevis.

Next action for the Lady Buffs will be on Saturday, Sept. 26, when they host their own invitational. Action gets under way at 9 a.m. at the GCHS Tennis Complex.
