Wichitans roll into 3-2-1A tennis semifinals

The Class 3-2-1A singles semifinals this morning will be an all Wichita affair after Collegiate and Independent each advanced two players through the early rounds Friday in Hillsboro.

Independent's Jake Norman will play Collegiate freshman Travis Osland in one semi, while Collegiate's Daniel Ritchie takes on Independent's Corban Aspegren in the other. The matches are scheduled for 9 a.m.

All four players breezed through their quarterfinal matches — none of them lost more than five games. Aspegren, the only one of the four who had to play a first-round match, had the most dominant day — he lost one game in six sets.

Both Collegiate's doubles teams reached the semifinals as well, and the quarterfinal victory by Hunter Morris and Paul Abromeit over Independent's Colten Anderson and Brandon King could have a bearing on the outcome of the team championship.

Morris and Abromeit will play teammates Chase Atnip and Clay Holden in the semis. Independent's Jacob Maddox and Sam McCoy, who won the regional title last week, will play Hutchinson Trinity's Jacob Banning and Michael Lindt in the other semi.

Class 6A — A five-hour rain delay in Topeka threw the tournament behind schedule. Only the first round was completed, meaning the top seeds never took the court. Play resumes at 9 a.m. today.

Class 5A — At McPherson, Andover Central's Tom Flynn was knocked out of the winner's bracket in the quarterfinals, losing to Steven Wirtz of Bishop Miege 7-5, 5-7, 11-9. Newton's Jenson Kingsley fell in the quarter to Aquinas' Christian Boschert in straight sets.

Newton's doubles team of Brooks Taylor and Josh Carlgren advanced to today's semifinals, beating Carroll's Christian Lollar and Jordan Torres 7-6, 7-6. McPherson's Cory Horton and Max Pyle also made the semis.

Class 4A — At Lindsborg, defending champion Quinn Dippel of Smoky Valley reached the semis, along with Wellington's Evan Keller and Hesston's Jesse Voth-Gaeddert. Dippel and Keller will play in one semi; Voth-Gaeddert will play Blake Hunter of Topeka Hayden in the other.

Maize South's Avery Emmert and Hunter Tucker reached the doubles semis with a straight set win in the quarterfinals. They will face Smoky Valley's Seth Nelson and Koltin Howard-Talbott this morning.

In the other semifinal, Winfield's Tanner Brock and Joe Albright will play Buhler's Alex Hill and Nick Wilson.
