hen tennis

Henryetta has a long, proud tennis tradition going back past the Knights and into the days when they were the Fighting Hens.
Three of those Hens are continuing the tradition with a trip to a national title next year.
The 65 and over team in the US Tennis Association Tulsa group took the Missouri Valley championship this past week.
Captained by HHS alum Tom Langwell along with Hen starts Mark Milligan and Dennis Morris, the team won the Tulsa group then sailed ahead to down a team from Oklahoma City.
That put them on the path for the Missouri Valley Sectional this past week. Playing at Kansas City, the Tulsa based team faced players from Kansas, Missouri, S.t Louis, Iowa and Nebraska. That involved playing four matches in three days.
The semi-finals saw Langwell, Morris and Milligan involved in a 3-0 win over Kansas and 3-0 victory against Nebraska to claim the championship title.
Still ahead is a trip to Arizona for the national championship matches. That is scheduled to take place in January, 2022.
