Special to The Hays Daily News
GARDEN CITY — It's always difficult for a coach to find a silver lining in a team's performance that finished fifth in a five-team meet, but that's what Hays High School boys tennis coach Megan Quinley was able to do on Monday when the Indians competed here at the Western Athletic Conference tournament.
While the Indians were watching Garden City claim the team title with 14 points, they managed just three points themselves, and all of those came from their No. 1 doubles team of senior Austin Berry and junior Andrew McGinnis.
Those two combined for a 3-1 record, tying both Dodge City and Garden City for the top spot only to lose out on a tiebreaker point system based upon scores with the other two teams. And since the three traded wins over each other, it became critical that the Indians had lost to Dodge City's top doubles team by an 8-3 margin.
"We kinda fell part a little versus Dodge City," Quinley said. "Otherwise, they came out and did what they were supposed to do."
And despite the fact they didn't have any wins to show for it, Mikey Ploutz at No. 1 and Logan VanDerWege at No. 2, still played well according to Quinley.
"I thought both played their best tennis of the season and I'm proud of how hard they've worked," said Quinley. "Even though they didn't win, they never gave up and they never stopped fighting."
Quinley said she thought her top doubles teams would have a chance to get a good seed at the Saturday Class 5A regional in Valley Center.
"I hope they come with the same intensity that they had today," Quinley said. "It's a tough regional, but I expect the guys to give their best effort."

1. Garden City, 14; 2. Dodge City, 10; 3. Great Bend, 7; 4. Liberal, 6; 5. Hays, 3.
