Avery Williams & Holly Holthaus

Marysville jumped up to Class 4A this year and in the first postseason action of the 2017-18 school the lady Bulldogs tennis team took to the courts in Topeka at the Hayden Regional and at the end of the day came out on top winning the Regional title.

Leading the charge for Marysville was the senior tandem of Holly Holthaus and Avery Williams who behind a 4-0 day controlled their opponents and earned the Doubles Regional crown. In the first match of the day at Regionals Holthaus and Williams dispatched KC Sumner 6-0, 6-0 and then in the Quarterfinals won 6-1, 6-2 over Spring Hill. In the Semifinals a team from the host school Hayden stood in front of Holly and Avery and the gals posted a 6-1, 6-4 victory to make the Championship bout. In the Championship match Holthaus and Williams downed Baldwin 6-0, 6-0 to take the Regional crown.

The win Regional title qualifies Holthaus and Williams for 4A State who both competed at the 3-2-1A State tournament last year in doubles competition also. The tandem heads to State with a 23-10 record on the season and riding a strong wave of momentum after the Regional title and also the Doubles #1 crown at the North Central Kansas League meet where Marysville won the NCKL title as a team.

Holthaus and Williams look to cap their season and tennis high school careers with a strong performance at the 4A State tournament set for October 13th and 14th in Pratt at Walter Blake Tennis Complex.
