STORIES OF THE YEAR: Briggs is first 5A state tennis qualifier

December 27, 2007

Amy Briggs boldly went where no Lansing High girls tennis player had ever gone before - the Class 5A state tournament.

Briggs, a sophomore, battled her way to a third-place finish in singles at the regional tournament in Emporia. By placing in the top four, she earned a trip to state.

Briggs lost to eventual third-place finisher Kelly Gerbert of Wichita Kapaun-Mt. Carmel and 10th-place finisher Lindsey Buenger of Mill Valley in her two matches at state.

Briggs' final record was 16-7.
