What a weekend for the Osage Indians!

Osage's tennis team shocked everyone at the Waynesville Tournament by finishing first overall in a strong field of eight teams.

Osage's Thomas Uhl, seeded number one, was the singles champion, and got a total of sixteen points for Osage. Uhl received a bye in the first round, and then with smart aggressive play at the net gave up only four games in three matches to take the title. In the final Uhl played a very steady defensive player from Waynesville, but took control of the net to win 8-3.

Adam Keith made it through the draw unseeded, to the semi-final. Keith had his chances to win, but was out steadied to lose a close 7-9 match. Keith took third for Osage with solid play, and an 8-2 win, over a good player from Kickapoo. Keith’s win clinched the first place team trophy over Kickapoo.

In doubles action Osage's number one team of Ryan Curran and Jordan Wilson won a first round match over Waynesville’s number two team with a score of 8-6. Curran and Wilson played their best match of the day going up against the number two seed in a strong Forsyth team, but lost 7-9.

Osage's number two doubles team of Garrett Grasshoff and Adam Schoening met a solid doubles team from Rolla in the first round, giving their best, but lost 2-8.

Osage finished with 25 points, with Kickapoo coming in second with 23 and Waynesville in third with 21.
