The PHS boys tennis team played in the Collegiate 4A regional over the weekend, but none were able to advance to State.

The Pratt High tennis team failed to advance anyone to State at the Wichita Collegiate regional over the weekend.

Caden Donnenwerth, the most experienced among the Greenback netters, played in a match to get to State, but the rest fell in their first rounds in the single elimination tournament.

Playing doubles were Kale Wilson and Chase Folkers who lost to Adams/Adams of Wellington 9-3 in their first match.

Also in doubles, Hogan Thompson and Luis Garcia lost to Dunbar/ Haug of El Dorado 9-3 in the opening round.

In singles, Jacob Brucks fell in his first match to Shum of El Dorado 9-1.

Pratt's top singles player Caden Donnenwerth came the closest to moving on, with a 6-0, 6-1 straight set win over Jergensen of Augusta in round one getting his day off to a good start.

His next opponent was Cho of Collegiate, who defeated Donnenwerth at love on his way to the regional championship.

That put Donnenwerth in the consolation semi-finals, in which a victory would have ensured a State berth. Alas, he came up a bit short in that match to Dick of Buhler 6-4, 6-2.

"There was some gamesmanship during this match that threw Caden for a loop, but that is something we have to learn to deal with on the mental side," PHS head tennis coach Tate Thompson said. "Caden will do what it takes to qualify for State next year and he will make sure to get big wins during the regular season to get a good seed for his next regional, which we are looking forward to."

With no one advancing to State, the PHS tennis season came to an end for this year.
