RED DEMON ROUNDUP
John Zetmeir Dodge City Daily Globe
After winning their first Western Athletic Conference championship in 27 years, the Dodge City boys tennis team won their first regional title in program history.
On their way to the regional championship, the Red Demons qualified their entire team for the 6A state tournament. Senior Florian Kark beat fellow Red Demon Brett Groth 6-2, 6-3 to take first place in the individual bracket.
The doubles team of Angel Salmeron and Maans Spaangeang fell to Garden City’s Jose Depaz and Issac Silva in the doubles championship match. The second place finish still earned Salmeron and Spaangeang a trip Prairie Village for the state tournament.
Richard Rodriguez and Logan Waldman also qualified for state with their third place finish in the doubles bracket.
The Red Demons will make the 300 mile trek this weekend for the 6A state tournament.
An overtime goal from Kasandra Herrera kept the Red Demons’ hopes for a Western Athletic Conference championship alive on Monday. Dodge City (10-4-1, 6-1) beat rival Garden City 1-0 for the second time this season.
The Red Demons will travel to Liberal on Thursday for their final game of the regular season. A win against the Redskins would secure at least a share of the WAC title.
On Thursday, the Dodge City girls swimming team won their first meet of the season with a team score of 554 points in Salina. It was the Red Demons highest score this season.
Junior Grace Harvey earned a state consideration time in the 100 meter backstroke. Fellow junior Hannah Sowers came just one second short of a consideration time in both the 50 and 100 meter freestyle.
Dodge City will travel to Garden City on Thursday to compete for the Western Athletic Conference championship.
