We had some difficult playing conditions as we were without our fourth player, and the girls also had to play part of their round in a downpour. A couple of the players had their worst holes during the heavy rain. All the girls had some triple bogeys during their rounds which hurt our team score. Our ball striking is one of the team’s strengths, but it took a few holes for the girls to get used to Carey Park’s Bermuda fairways.”Middle school?netters fourthMAIZE — The Newton middle schools girls’ tennis team placed fourth at the Pioneer League Division I tournament Tuesday in Maize.?Andover won the tournament with 118 points, followed by Derby, Maize South, Newton, Hutchinson and Haysville West.?The tournament ended the season for Newton.Pioneer League?Division I?Tournament?Team scores — Andover 118, Derby 111, Maize South 108, Newton 65, Maize 51, Hutchinson 50, Haysville West 48.?Newton results?First singles — 4.
