WAYNESVILLE – The Lebanon High School girls’ tennis season came to an end as the varsity team competed in the Missouri Class 2 District 9 Individual Tournament on Saturday at Waynesville High School to wrap up the 2017 season.

Lebanon finished the day with two All-District performers in the 2017 season with Hannah Lowery and Zephanie White earning the accolade by finishing third in No. 1 doubles over the weekend.

Lowery and White started their day with a 6-1, 6-1 win over the No. 1 doubles team from Sedalia Smith-Cotton to advance to the semifinals. In the semifinal match, the duo came up just a match short from advancing on to sectionals, falling to Jefferson City 0-6, 0-6.

The two did end their season on a high note, defeating the doubles team from Camdenton in the third-place match, 8-1.

“Hannah and Zephanie were outstanding in finishing third in a very tough doubles draw,” Lebanon head tennis coach Ron Crowell said. “With their performance, they earn All-District honors.

“Hannah finished her high school tennis career on a high note and I couldn’t be more proud of the way she competed.”

In No. 2 doubles, Addi Myler and Megan Adams finished the day 1-1 with an opening round win over a talented Rolla team, 6-0, 6-4. Myler and Adams would eventually fall to the No. 1 seed Jefferson City team, 2-6, 4-6.

“Megan and Addi played well (Saturday),” Crowell said. “They got a win in their first round match against a good Rolla team before losing to the No. 1 seed from Jeff City.”

In singles play, Skyler Maynor dropped her opening match to Hannah Robinson from Camdenton, 1-6, 5-7 and Ashton Arthur lost her first match to Laura McCutcheon from Rolla in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 3-6.

“Ashton and Skyler each played some of their best tennis of the season,” Crowell said. “I think they both got some awesome experience that they can use headed into next season.”
Crowell said overall, he was proud of the way his team performed this season.

“This team has had a great season and they have a lot to be proud of,” Crowell said. “Hopefully heading into the offseason we can work on some things and be ready to go next fall.

“We are excited about the team for next season.”
