Grant Shewey placed first at the meet with wins over Kyle Burger of Conway Springs, 8-3, and Cody Pearson of McPherson, 8-3.
Taylor Hagen and Jared Hamm also won two matches as a doubles tandem, defeating Charlie Arbuckle and Conner Schafer, of McPherson, 8-7, and Duncan Kohn and Jonathan Nyguard of Wichita Trinity, 8-1.
