Tennis Begins State Tournament Today

The Pierre Governors tennis team is opening up the state tournament today in Sioux Falls. The Governors finished in 7th in the ESD Conference Tournament last weekend but look to make more strides individually in the tournament.

First round matches for all singles flights will begin at 8:00 and 9:00 followed by second round matches. Then to end the day, doubles flights are scheduled to begin at 12:45.

Friday will pick back up with matches beginning at 8:00 and will eliminate everybody except for those competing in the consolation championship as well those in place matches and the championship semifinals which all be concluded on Saturday.

Last year the Governors did not find any players in the final day but coach Steve Steele looks to change that this year.

There’s just one change for the Governors as freshman Spencer Kelley will move into the doubles rotation with Cole Nelson for the tournament. You can follow for updates on the high school activities website.
