LPHS to give girls tennis players a special send off

Posted by wlpo on October 22, 2013

Remember the high school pep rallies for the football and basketball teams?  LP High School officials are making sure to remember their state qualifying girls tennis players.

Senior Katie Wellner and junior Anna Konczak will leave school early Wednesday afternoon for the tournament at Buffalo Grove High School.  Athletic Director D’Wayne Bates says the girls will receive a state final send-off, something he hopes will become a tradition.

The send off will create a mini-parade through the halls starting in the first floor.  All of the teachers and students will line the halls while the girls pass by with a drum line.

Wellner and Konczak are coached by Clay Theisinger.

You can learn more by listening to an interview with Bates at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
