Christopherson wins consolation at Jenks

JENKS, Okla. —  Jason Christopherson’s consolation championship at No. 2 singles was the highlight for Enid’s boys at the Jenks tennis tournament Friday.

Christopherson won three matches after a first-round loss, including a 6-2, 6-4 win over Carson Howard of Tulsa Kelley for ninth place.

Zachary Gwin was 15th at No. 1singles. Connor Angleton and Blake Young were 12th at No. 1 doubles. Tyler Hallett and Zac Kensinger were 16th at No. 2 doubles.

Enid coach Darrell Herndon still was encouraged, pointing out everyone had to play up a level after junior standout Daniel Martinez underwent hip flexor surgery.

“We obtained a lot of our goals today,’’ Herndon said. “I’m proud of the way that we performed, especially since we hadn’t played on a tennis court in eight days.’’

Of out of 32 sets played, Enid players only lost two sets 6-0. They went 2-2 in super tiebreakers and lost one 7-6 tiebreaker and two 7-5 sets.

“We wanted to prevent as many 6-0 sets as we could,’’ Herndon said. “We even won one set 6-0.

“These kids have had to make a lot of adjustments, but I feel we can get better with every tournament.’’

The EHS girls go to Jenks today.

    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
