MMS Girls Tennis Wins Hutchinson Invitational


HUTCHINSON, Kan. – The Hutchinson Invitational came down to the last championship match of the day, as McPherson’s, Avery Unruh and Quinn Liebl were able to defeat Andover, to win the tournament.

“Today, the girls battled hard all day long,” said Head Coach Paul Reichenberger. “In almost every championship, it was McPherson vs. Andover, and our girls won just enough matches to get first place today.” Reichenberger mentioned how difficult this tournament had been in the past, saying “This year was actually the first time we have been able to win the Hutchinson Invitational tournament since I have been coaching.” He concluded by saying, “The 8th-grade class has really improved from when they first started playing as seventh graders. These girls really love tennis and I’m very excited to watch them continue to grow as tennis players.”
