Two back for

Railer tennis

The Newton High School boys’ tennis team will have just two letterwinners back for the 2018 season.

Scott Sisson begins his 17th season as the Railer head coach, assisted by Grant Scott.

Newton was third in the AV-CTL I last year, third at regionals and ninth at state.

Returning letterwinners are Seth Bontrager and Jason Wong.

“We have no returning state medalists or qualifiers,” Sisson said. “Half of our team are freshmen, so we are young and in a growing year. Our goal for the season is to qualify at least one entry for state competition.”

Sisson looks for Salina Central, Salina South and Maize to be among the top contenders for the league title.
