  • Shawnee’s Shelbe Fennell and Emily Stobbe, playing together for the first time at No. 2 doubles, went 3-0 Tuesday to capture the championship of the Ponca City Tournament.
     
    Fennell and Stobbe defeated entries from Westmoore (6-2, 6-2) and Choctaw (6-4, 6-2) before knocking off the Edmond Memorial team (6-2, 6-3) in the finals.
     
    “I was really pleased with them,” Shawnee coach Terry Woodward said. “All of the schools in the tournament were 6A schools except Shawnee.”
     
    Edmond Memorial took the girls’ team championship with Shawnee coming in second.
     
    The Lady Wolves also got a second-place finish from No. 1 singles entry Meagan Hanson, who knocked off Edmond Santa Fe’s Katelyn Keller (6-2, 6-3) and Anna Norman of Choctaw (6-0, 6-0) before dropping a 6-0, 6-0 decision to Edmond Memorial’s Maya Hamaker (6-0, 6-0), the No. 1 seed.
     
    Shawnee’s No. 2 singles entrant, Kaylan Storie, went 1-2 to finish sixth and the Lady Wolves’ No. 1 doubles team of McKenzie Lumry and Meg Reeder was also 1-2 and came in fourth.
     
    On the boys’ side, Shawnee’s best finish, fifth place, came from the No. 2 doubles team of Collin Boland and Zach Fisher. Boland and Fisher dropped their initial match to Jenks (6-1, 6-3) before rebounding for victories over Choctaw (6-2, 7-5) and Ponca City (3-6, 6-3, 10-5).
     
    Placing sixth for Shawnee was the No. 1 doubles team of Bryce Dowhower and Luke Laster, No. 1 singles performer Montana Sellers and No. 2 singles entrant Chase Wood. All of those Shawnee entrants were 1-2 on the day.
     
    Both Shawnee teams will compete Friday at the Guthrie Tournament, scheduled for the Oklahoma City Tennis Center.
