BUHLER — McPherson High’s No. 1 doubles team of Ashley Achilles and Madison Schmidt went 2-1 for second place in the AVCTL JV Tennis Tournament on Thursday.

Also for the Bullpups, Jensen Mierkiewicz was 2-1 at No. 2 singles for fifth place. At No. 1 singles, Daphne Carrillo was 1-2 for sixth.

The other entrant was Caitlin Faulk and Lexi Verow, who were 1-2 for seventh at No. 2 doubles.

MHS tied for fifth in the team standings with 32 points. Collegiate and Winfield shared the title with 54.

“After changing up the lineup the day before, I was very pleased with the way we performed,” MHS coach Noah Lindfors said. “We went into the day with two of our entries having a 0-0 record due to a change in partners or a change from doubles to singles. We finished right where I thought we would. I saw great attitudes and efforts. It was a great way to end the season.”
