In 2018, the Salina South girls tennis program celebrated its first state trophy in history.

This year, South did a tad bit better.

After finishing third a season ago, the Salina South Cougars took another step forward, ending the fall as Class 5A State Runner-ups. Salina South racked up 29 points, three shy of first-place Kapaun in Pittsburg.

South received a pair of fifth-place medals. Robyn Logan led that charge in the singles division. Meanwhile, Jillian Coleman and Tess Daily combined to follow suit. Alexxa Nunemaker and Ileana Armbrust took ninth.

Salina Central wasn’t too far behind, racking up 24 points, good for seventh. Callie Sandborn had the highest finish from Salina participants, grabbing fourth in singles. Camryn Phelps and Reagan Geihsler ended up in eighth.
