On May 7-8, Dunbar’s tennis team attended the city tournament. 

Four doubles teams and four singles players entered the tournament. The first day of the tournament was cut short when it began to rain, leaving most of the matches to be played out on the second day. Only one of Dunbar’s players made it to the semi-finals, sophomore Kian Rosenau, who is the boys’ first singles player. The rest of Dunbar’s players were defeated in rounds one and two. 

In the semifinals, Kian played well but was beaten by Evan Duggal of Henry Clay High School, who is ranked #2 in Kentucky. 

Dunbar’s boys’ first doubles team, consisting of seniors JoonWoo Park and Jackson Gabbard, was knocked out in round two by Henry Clay High School after a long and hard-fought match.

Seniors Emma Jinright and Bella Burns won their first match but sadly lost their round two matches of the tournament. 

Dunbar played well at the city tournament and will most definitely make improvements in preparation for the regional tournament.
