LHS tennis competes in Topeka
The Lansing High tennis team traveled to Topeka on Monday afternoon for the Washburn Quadrangular at Kossover Tennis Center.
LHS was pitted against Class 6A powerhouse Washburn Rural, as well as Topeka High and 5A power Topeka West in a series of duals that Lansing coach Rachel Elkins said would help prepare the Lions for regionals.
"This was the type of tough competition the boys need to experience," she said.
Senior Josh Robinson posted a 1-2 record at No. 1 singles. He earned an 8-5 victory over Jake Van Slyke of West before falling to Taylor O'Bley of T-High, 8-3, and Johny Stueve of Rural, 8-1. Junior Mo Meyer also went 1-2 at No. 2 singles with an 8-4 victory over Brad Bleich of West, an 8-3 loss to William Marsh of T-High and an 8-1 loss to Sebastian Reiter of Rural.
Juniors Daniel Miskowic and Eric Hansen went 0-3 at No. 1 doubles, and sophomores Ezra Carpenter and Clayton Hall went 0-3 at No. 2 doubles.
Lansing next plays at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Hayden Invitational in Topeka.
