Tennis teams finish with multiple titles

DUNCAN —

The regular season may still be months away, but the Duncan tennis team was already showing signs of improvements at this weekend’s First Bank Junior Tournament.
Duncan took home three championships and saw eight of its players reach the final round at the competition, held at the Duncan High tennis courts.
Ryan Robinson and Grant Braught took home titles for the boys team, winning the 18-and-under singles and 14-and-under tournaments while Alex Bowers won the girls 18-and-under singles bracket for the Lady Demons.
“Alex, Ryan and Grant had exceptional tournaments,” Duncan head coach Phil Barnes said. “Alex just powered through the competition while facing two top notch opponents, Ryan did everything I expected him to do and Grant played really well and figured out how to win out there.”
After claiming his first two matches, Robinson had to face off against a fellow Demons player, defeating Duncan’s Andre Vuong 6-4, 6-4 to take first.
Facing arguably the toughest bracket in the field, Bowers was unphased, beating two closely contested matches against Edmond to win the championship.
Braught proved to be one of Duncan’s up and coming players in boys 14-and-under singles, defeating Duncan’s Noah McGhay and John Stobbe en route to the title. 
Playing in the girls 14-and-under division, Logan Churchman reached the finals before falling to Edmond’s Asha Hamaker. Churchman’s semifinal opponent Alex Cassidy made the most of the consolation round by winning the event’s bracket.
Carly Kirland found the same results in girls 16-and-under singles, reaching the finals before dropping the championship round to Edmond’s Katie Conrad. 
Duncan had no trouble with the competition in the consolation round. Sam Moffatt won the boys 18-and-under singles, while Jordan Clausson, Aubrey Mouser and McGhay all reached the finals of their consolation events.

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.
