ADA – The Ada Tennis Center and East Central University’s Mayhue and Oscar Parker Courts will serve as hosts to the Ada High Tennis Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
The boys division will take place Friday with the girls playing on Saturday. Action will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. or shortly after each day.
“We have a good variety of classes along with talent,” said veteran Ada tennis skipper Skip Griese.
In the boys’ division, 16 schools are expected to be represented – seven in Class 4A, five in 5A and four in 6A. On the girls side, the field will also feature 16 schools — five in Class 4A, six in 5A and five in 6A.
“In the girls, Deer Creek, Duncan and Norman North should be pretty strong and on the boys side, it’s Ada, Crossings Christian and Deer Creek,” Griese said. “I’ve seen Deer Creek, and Yukon is solid in girls’ No. 1 singles. Duncan is decent, and Crossings has a good No.1 singles player. This is one of the deepest No. 1 singles tournaments.”
There is no admission charge.
“We invite the public and hope there is good weather,” said Griese.
Both the Lady Cougars and Cougars are coming off runner-up finishes at the Carl Albert Tournament last weekend.
“We played well to be second. We just need to build on that,” Griese said. “There’s always room for improvement.”
The Ada boys crowned one champion at No. 2 doubles – the team of Harrison Boggs and Ryan McCortney. The Cougars’ No. 1 doubles combination of Landon Swopes and Lane Taylor took second at that tournament. Christian Siegle placed third at No. 2 Singles and Reese Siegle was fourth at No. 1 Singles for Ada.
On the girls side, the Lady Cougars’ Lauryn Hawkins and Meredyth Morris finished second at No. 1 doubles, and the No. 1 doubles combo of Ella Summer and Maggie Summers claimed third. Ada’s Makayla Freeman settled for fourth at No. 2 singles and Maggie Johnson ended up fifth at No. 1 Singles.
