OKLAHOMA CITY – The Lady Bronco tennis team have had a tough time fighting to get first place in tournaments. The girls have earned a few second places but not a gold finish before Spring Break.

The break may have been exactly what they needed last Thursday, Mustang won the Piedmont-Western Heights Dual at home. The girls also won the U.S. Grant Tournament last Saturday as well.

Mustang won the Western Heights-Piedmont Dual last Thursday and only lost won match on the day. 

“I’m real pleased with the way that everything is coming together and the way the girls are staying real positive and having fun,” Mustang coach Dave Rankin said.

At No. 1 singles Kyndal Heath went 2-1 in the U.S. Grant Tournament losing only in the finals to Maria Marcos 7-5 from Northwest Classen.

“Kyndal had a good tournament she lost to a girl that was sixth in the state,” Rankin said.

Sarah Adkins, a freshman, stepped into the U.S Grant Tournament at No. 2 singles and finished in first place. 

“She stepped in their and won the tournament and did well,” Rankin said. “She did an awesome job especially for a freshman to step into her first varsity tournament and going 3-0.”

Jessica Garner and Stevie Josey swept their competition at No. 1 Doubles last Saturday and won the tournament.

“Stevie and Jessica did a great job at one doubles,” Rankin said. “They were real positive with each other.”

Heather Underwood and Taylor Sullivan also paired up at No. 2 Doubles and won the U.S Grant Tournament.

“I’m really pleased with our two doubles. They are starting to gel as a good team. They are 13-6 on the season,” Rankin said.

The changes from the team seemed to help Mustang for the time being.

“Sometimes we don’t have the right fit for different people. We’ll be doing a little more changing around. It’s like a puzzle you have to put everything together,” Rankin said.
