SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School tennis teams will take two number one seeds in to this weekend’s state tournament after Reed Ritterbusch and Julia Fenn won North Regional Tennis Tournament titles Saturday.
For the boys at No. 1 singles Ritterbusch defeated Sam Coulter of Gillette, 6-4 and 6-4 to secure his top spot. Fenn, at No. 1 singles for the girls, defeated Natrona’s Regan Hendricks 6-2, 6-1.
Ritterbusch is matched up with Brennan Hansen of Riverton in the first round at state. Fenn will face Regan Ford of Rawlins. Each will be defending their No. 1 singles titles from 2012.
Earning runner-up finishes were Adam Berry, No. 2 singles and Lachlan Brennan and Tristan Gamble at No. 2 doubles. Turner Martini and Logan Garstad fought off a semifinal loss at No. 1 doubles and came back to earn third place Saturday.
Katelynn Brooks took third at No. 2 singles for the girls. Brooks fought out of a tough first round matchup on the rainy first day when players completed eight-game pro sets. She beat Natrona’s Tristyn Phillips 9-7, and after falling in the semis, would come back to defeat Phillips again in the consolation final 6-3 and 7-5.
The state tournament will be held in Gillette.
