Written by Janae Rempel Tuesday, 30 April 2013 12:16The Tabor tennis teams competed in the KCAC Individual Flights Tennis Tournaments Thursday in Salina.
“The individual tournament was delayed all morning by rain, so only the doubles was played,” coach John Ruder said. “Our teams performed well, but were hampered by missing players.
“Only one of the men’s and one of the women’s teams remained the same as during the regular season.”
For the men, in No. 1 doubles, second-team all-KCAC selection David Simmet and Tyler Dort entered as the No. 6 seed and lost to No. 3 Ottawa, 8-3, in the quarterfinal round. Simmet and Dort then defeated No. 7 Friends, 8-1, and then No. 5 Southwestern, 8-2, to claim fifth place.
In No. 2 doubles, No. 7 seeded Nate Panttaja and Jared Friesen...

The victories improved the Trojans’ season record to 6-4.
“Sunrise is building a program,” coach Doug Dick said. “They had some good players at positions, but just not enough.”
In a Game 1 halted by the mercy rule after 21⁄2 innings, Hillsboro took advantage of three Buffalo walks and six errors to generate 16 runs in two team at-bats.
To that mix the Trojans added eight base hits, including a 3-for-3 performance by Nathan Unruh. Lucas Sinclair drove in three runs with a base-loaded double in the second inning.
Hillsboro led 7-0 after one inning and 16-0...

“I’m proud of my players,” coach Suzanne Unruh said. “We started 0-6 in the KCAC, and instead of throwing in the hat after that, these girls got stronger and went 11 straight.”
The Bluejays split their doubleheader with Ottawa (9-7, 22-13), opening with a 4-2 win in Game 1. The game remained scoreless until Tabor scored all its runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Ottawa answered with two runs in the top of the sixth, but Tabor held on for the victory.
Katie Henning led the Bluejays with two RBIs on 1-for-3 hitting. Cortnie Killen contributed one RBI...
