AURORA | While the double matches of the inaugural Far East Invitational girls tennis tournament took place at co-host Cherokee Trail Friday, the Cougars’ singles players had an outstanding day at Vista PEAK.

No. 1 Kiran Dass, No. 2 Morgan Frushour and No. 3 Yinlin Li each won two matches on the opening day of the two-day tournament featuring a slew of Aurora teams and all three Cherokee Trail singles players earned their way into Saturday’s championship round.

Matches are set to begin at 9 a.m., with all championship matches and everything except for some consolation doubles matches set to be played at Vista PEAK. The tournament has a double-elimination format, so winners of the championship matches may face challenges from players who make it all the way through the consolation bracket.

The Bison had one singles player reach the championship match in senior Jordyn Probst, who earned the spot opposite Li in the No. 3 singles final.

Smoky Hill also has a finalist at No. 2 singles, while Hinkley and Rangeview had nobody win twice.

Fort Morgan and Fort Lupton managed one singles championship spot between them, as Fort Morgan’s No. 1 singles player meets Dass in the final.
