Here we go again.
McPherson High and Wichita Collegiate are expected to battle it out here Monday for the AVCTL Division III-IV tennis title when the tournament is contested at the MHS Tennis Complex.
The serving and volleying begins at 10 a.m. Spectators are more than welcomed to come watch some of the best tennis players in the state.
MHS was No. 1 and Collegiate No. 2 in the most recent Class 4A state poll, but when the teams last hooked up it was the Spartans who came away with a victory by outlasting the Bullpups by a scant two points in Collegiate’s Tournament of Champions.
But don’t count out Winfield, which has a solid team and has been periodically ranked in Class 4A. Buhler also should have some capable entries as the Top 4 teams look solid.
Rounding out the field are Augusta, Circle, El Dorado and Wellington.
The Bullpups have won all but one of the tournaments they have entered this year. Collegiate has a legendary program, having secured 21 state championships and has the necessary depth to match the Bullpups.
MHS’ consistency has been its strength, with singles players Jarrod Nowak and Andrew Snell among the Top 10 in the state, while Nolan Schrader and Kento Aizawa are expected to contend for the state doubles title. The Bullpups’ other doubles team of Kaden Stewart and Hadley Hageman would be a No. 1 entry for many schools.

WICHITA — This is getting to be old hat for McPherson College’s tennis teams.
On Saturday, both Mac teams once again qualified for the NAIA National Tournament that begins on May 17 in Mobile, Ala., by winning the KCAC Postseason Tournament.
The Bulldog men, who last Saturday lost 5-4 to regular-season conference champion Bethany, avenged that loss with a 5-3 victory. Bethany led 2-1 after the doubles matches, but Mac roared back by winning four of the five completed singles matches.
The Bulldogs entered the day ranked No. 20 in the country while the Swedes were No. 16. Bethany now awaits its fate whether or not it will join its county brethren at nationals. It was the second straight year the Bethany men had won the regular season, only to see Mac avenge the loss in the tournament, which carries with it an automatic national bid.
It was much easier for the three-time KCAC champion Mac women, who breezed to a 5-1 victory over Ottawa, which was making its first appearance in the tourney finals. Mac won two of the three doubles matches, then dominated in singles play.
