Shawnee’s Lady Wolves, hosting the first half of the “Nick Birchett Invitational,” had their competition shortened Friday by the weather.
No. 1 singles entrant Meagan Hanson won her first two matches, and trailed Ada’s Margo Martin before the rain threatened. Hanson defeated Putnam City North’s Savannah Atwood (6-0, 6-0) and Byng’s Hannah Fortmer (6-0, 6-0).
Meg Reeder, at No. 2 singles, topped Byng’s Kalina Popova (6-2, 6-0) before falling to Hannah Bowen of Heritage Hall (6-0, 6-0). Reeder led Megan Hanson in the second set before having that match halted by the weather.
No. 1 doubles teammates McKenzie Lumry and Emily Stobbe were also leading in their third match — over Tecumseh — before having to stop. They fell earlier to an Edmond Santa Fe duo, and defeated Paige O’Neal and Alasia Standing Elk of Shawnee’s second team, 6-0, 6-0.
At No. 2 doubles, Shelbe Fennell and Kaylan Storie had their semifinals bout halted by the rain. They went 2-0 in their first two matches, topping a Henryetta pair (6-0, 6-2) and a team a Durant pair (6-1, 6-2).
Weather permitting, Shawnee’s boys will play their portion of the “Nick Birchett Invitational” today.
