NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The North Platte Girl’s Tennis Team celebrated their Senior Day this afternoon, hosting a triangular at Cody Park. In the first match of the day, the Lady Bulldogs squared off against Lexington. Led by Seniors Brianna Plaster and Samantha Bowers, North Platte secured a 6-3 victory over the Minutemaids.

“It feels really good. Especially not playing my best yesterday, to come back today and win my first two matches feels really great. I hope to keep it up against Ogallala,” said Plaster.

Brianna did maintain that high level of play in the next match, tallying an 8-3 victory from the #1 spot. Fellow senior Samantha Bowers was the hero of the contest with the Lady Indians. Samantha and her partner, Gracie Risse, recorded the lone doubles victory for the Lady Bulldogs. Tied at 4-4, Bowers went on to win her singles match 8-3, clinching a 5-4 victory and securing an undefeated day for North Platte Tennis.

“Oh it feels amazing. Especially since this is my last year playing tennis, I just feel really good about it. My teammates were cheering me on from the sideline and their support got me really pumped up,” added Bowers.
