The Dodge City Red Demons placed 14th as a team Saturday in the 6A state tennis tournament.
The placing made the Red Demons the highest- ranked 6A tennis team west of Manhattan, Kansas according to head coach David Snodgrass.
The team was led by senior Leah Stein, who Snodgrass called “one of the best to ever play “Lady Demon Tennis.”
It was the first time she had one a match at state, but she won twice Saturday, moving her wins total all-time to 97. She is now the all-time leader at Dodge City High School in career wins as a singles player, and her 34 wins this season tied on member of Independence High School (a 4A school) for the most wins in all school classifications this season.
“As a coach I’m super proud of these four seniors and the accomplishments they made senior year,” Snodgrass said via email. “Each one of them has a separate tennis story of where they started with Lady Demon tennis and to have each one of them finish together at the state tournament, is very special. I thank each one for everything they had contributed to our program over the years.”
