  • PRATT The Hesston High School boys' tennis team made a clean sweep of the Central Kansas League Championships Monday at Pratt. The Swathers topped Pratt 60-48 for the title. Sterling was third with 36 points, followed by Smoky Valley at 21 (.515), Hillsboro at 21 (.485), Kingman at 18 and Haven at six. At first singles, Hesston's Keegan LeFevre went 3-0 for the title, topping top-seeded Thomas Mayberry of Pratt 6-1, 6-3 in the finals. Collin Martin won the second singles title, finishing 2-0. In the finals, Martin downed Caleb Hendricks of Sterling 6-1, 6-0. At first doubles, Dean Dahlsten and Peter Jensen finished 2-0 for the title, stopping Liam Kahmeyer and Christian Kurz of Pratt 6-3, 6-3 in the finals. At second doubles, Jacob Penner and Isaac Penner finished 2-0 for the title, stopping Shivam Bhakta and Evan Foreman of Pratt 6-1, 6-3 in the finals. "We obviously played well in sweeping all 4 flights," Hesston coach Mark Dahlsten said. "Keegan LeFevre played particularly well in avenging a loss earlier in the season to Mayberry from Pratt. We will need to be on top of our game as we head into regionals as the regional appears to be loaded but I am confident the guys will rise to the occasion and give their best efforts." Hesston competes in the Class 4A regionals Thursday and Friday at Smoky Valley High School. The top six finishers in singles and doubles advance to state May 10 and 11 at Wichita Collegiate.
