DHS Tennis has success at road tournaments

DUNCAN — While facing different qualities of competition at different venues, the Duncan boys and girls tennis teams each produced impressive results Sunday.

The Demons won all four events and took first place at the Cameron Tournament, while the Lady Demons finished fourth at the invite-only Hertiage Hall Tournament of Champions.

“I thought we played really well,” head coach Phil Barnes said of the Lady Demons’ effort. “Our girls finishing here makes me feel really good.”

Heritage Hall Invitational

Up against some of the state’s top competition, the Lady Demons battled from start to finish, finishing fourth with 19 points.

Jenks took the tournament title with 32 points, Enid finished second with 27 and Edmund North placed third with 19.

Brittany Toone showed resilliance in No.1 singles play, beating Heritage Hall’s Kat Allen 6-3, 6-1 after dropping her first two matches.

Alex Bowers continued to play well at the No. 2 singles slot, beating Haley Dean of Ada 6-1, 6-0 and Gabrielle Dick from Enid 6-4, 6-2 before falling in the finals to Jenks’ Jenny Vaughn 6-2, 6-1 and taking second place.

 In No. 1 doubles, Samantha Cassidy and Sydnie Hendricks dropped their first match to Enid’s Dick and Dillingham team and won their second match against overly and Smith 2-6, 7-6, 6-1. In their third match against Bolin and Hill, the duo won the first set before the match was rained out.

No. 2 doubles play saw Carly Kirland and Marissa Moore take two out of three matches to earn third place. The pair beat Heritage Hall’s Bersky and Hayen team 6-3, 6-2, fell to Jenks’ Decker and Burke squad 6-1, 6-0 in the semifinals and swept Edmund North’s Carter and Leszeuski team 6-0, 6-0 in the third place game.

Cameron Tournament

Duncan made it clear from the start that it was the team to beat, and played like it all day, winning every event and taking first place overall.

“They were all seeded very high and they didn’t mess that up,” Demons assistant coach Mike Lewis said. “It was a really strong day for us.”

Ryan Robinson had no trouble in No. 1 singles, beating Eisenhower’s Ben Johnson 6-0, 6-0 in the first round, sweeping Moore’s Cory Bryan 6-0, 6-0 in the semifinals and taking first with a 6-1, 6-1 win in the finals.

It only took two games for Andre Vuong to win No. 2 doubles, as he opened with a bye. Vuong then beat Lawton’s Jason Thompkins 6-1, 6-0 in the semifinals and clinched first with a 6-4, 6-1 win against Gemon Gourd in the finals.

It was more of the same in doubles play. Sam Allen and Brant Davis took second in number one doubles, falling 6-4, 6-2 to Anadarko’s Matthews/Ahshatanek team in the finals. In No. 2 doubles, Allen Hruby and Cameron McCasland won the event by defeating Anadarko’s Perez/Rico duo 6-4, 6-1 in the finals.

Poll

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
