Buffs' tennis 5th at Topeka





The newly-paired No. 2 doubles team of Joe Basillo and Jose Depaz continued their strong performance for the Garden City Buffaloes boys tennis team at Monday's Topeka High Invitational played at the Kossover Tennis Center.

Basillo and Depaz combined to win five of their six matches en route to a second-place finish in their division and that enabled the Buffs to place fifth with 32 points in a field of 11 teams.

"They've stepped it up and are doing well," said GCHS coach Rod Robinson. "I'm pleased with the way things are going since we rearranged our doubles teams."

Dozie Ekweariri posted a 4-2 record and finished fifth in No. 2 singles while Sebastian Kyaw took seventh after going 3-3 at No. 1 singles. The No. 1 doubles team of Dylvan Victor and Esteban Neave placed sixth, finishing 3-3.

"Our records are improving and we saw some quality opponents today," Robinson said. "I thought Dozie played after his (opening) loss. Sebastian obviously had the toughest players at No. 1. After winning No. 2 singles two years in a row, I'm sure he hoped for better."

The Buffs travel on Thursday to the Goddard Invitational. They host the WAC tourney on Monday.
