Hillsboro’s Allison Weber hits the overhead volley during her opening match Friday afternoon against Omelia Thomas of Ellinwood at the Class 3-2-1A state tennis tournament in Hutchinson. The tournament was delayed by rain midway through their first set. When play resumed Sunday afternoon, Weber defeated Thomas, 4-6, 6-4 (11-9), then lost to the tournament’s undefeated No. 1 seed and eventual champion, Sara Goodwin of Kansas City Christian, 6-0, 6-0.
