CENTRAL TENNIS TEAM TRIES FOR STATE BERTH

Central, which finished second in the recent Class 4A, District 1 Tournament, will compete Saturday in the 4A Sectional at Kirkwood High School in the St. Louis area.

The Tigers (13-3 dual matches) play District 2 champion Kirkwood (15-0) in one semifinal while District 1 winner SLUH (6-5) and District 2 runner-up Parkway South (13-3) square off in the other semifinal.

The sectional winner advances to the state team tournament May 23 in Springfield, Mo.

Central's Trevor Blattner and Andy Tansil have already qualified for the state individual tournament May 24-25 in Springfield by virtue of their district doubles title.
