Saint Jo pair compete at state tennis

While the Saint Jo girl’s double team is not bringing a medal home this year from the state tournament, they still put up a good showing.
Senior Kyler Dunn and junior Taylor Patrick fell in the first round of the state tennis tournament on Thursday at North East High School against a team from Knippa that would go on to finish second overall.
The pair were making their second straight appearance at state. Last year the team did not know what to expect. Coming in after finishing second at both district and regionals, the odds were against them advancing past the first round.
Instead, they beat a team from Vernon Northside with the scores 6-0, 7-6 to move on. In the second round, the pair eventually lost to the eventual state champs from Utopia, but finished tied for third place and brought back a bronze medal.
This season, Dunn and Patrick had higher expectations and came in with a lot of confidence. They blitzed through both the district and regional tournaments, facing few teams that could win even a game against them let alone challenge them.
Still, that does not guarantee success at state.
Facing a team that share the same last name from Knippa, the first set was a battle that ultimately didn’t go Saint Jo’s way, losing 7-6.
The second set was competitive, but unfortunately the Lady Panther duo could not get many of the deuce points to go there way. Knippa won the second set 6-1 to win the match 2-0.
The team that beat Saint Jo had a much easier time in the second round against a Mertzon Irion County team before losing in the finals against the same Utopia team that won the state title the previous season and also that had beaten Dunn and Patrick last year.
While it was not the ending the pair was hoping for, it was a still a good season for them to get back to state, with them having the pressure coming into the season unlike last year.
“I am extremely proud of them for making it to state for the second year in a row. That is not something that is done easily,” Coach Brady Hilton. “They worked hard throughout the entire year, coming up to practices despite having softball and track practice as well, and I cannot be more proud of them for the work they put in the entire year.”
