SALT LAKE CITY—All four high schools in Sanpete County have student-athletes competing in the 3A State Tennis Tournament, which kicks off today.

The tournament, at Liberty Park in Salt lake City today through Saturday, is a mixed bag of schools since the state saw fit to smash teams from 1A, 2A and 3A schools into one big 3A classification for state tennis this year.

Out of all Sanpete’s teams, North Sanpete is sitting prettiest. The Hawks ended their region season with a 6-1 record; they barely fell behind Richfield into a close second in the Region 15 tourney.

North Sanpete, Manti, Gunnison and Wasatch Academy all face off against high-ranked opponents in the first round, with contestants assembling on the Liberty Park tennis courts to begin play at 8:30 a.m. this morning.
