Seabury roundup: Dillon 4th at tennis regional

May 17, 2005


— Seabury Academy junior Grayson Dillon placed fourth in singles, earning a trip to the state tournament at Monday's Class 1-2-3A tennis regional -- the first state tennis trip in Seabury's history.

Dillon won his first two matches, guaranteeing a spot at state, then lost his next two.

Seabury's Ashley Woolsey lost her lone singles match Monday, as did the Seahawks' doubles teams of Brooke Sutherland and Max Cannon and Scott King and Alan Park.

But Dillon's season will continue at the state tournament Friday and Saturday in Dodge City.

"We've seen the best that there is, and Grayson can play with them," Seabury coach Marcus Heckman said. "I think our regional was pretty tough."

Soccer falls, 3-0, to Class 5A Miege

Roeland Park -- Seabury Academy's soccer season ended with a 3-0 loss Monday at Roeland Park Miege.

The teams played 68 scoreless minutes before the Class 5A Stags got untracked against Seabury, the only Class 1A school in the regional.

"Moral victories ... you can claim a lot of these, but moral victories don't make the bumps and bruises hurt any less," Seabury coach Gunar Harmon said. "The players to the last one gave their very best effort. We just ran out of gas.

"Their goalkeeper never touched the ball. Defending against that kind of pressure for that long was an incredible effort."

Harmon cited his graduating seniors -- Irene Oben, Laura Frizell, Elise Stella and Bani Singh -- for their play all season.

"The effort by everyone was better than expected, above the norm," Harmon said. "We had one game of similar effort against Kansas City Lutheran. It was everything soccer was supposed to be in terms of intensity. What can you ask when you're playing the role of David against Goliath?

"The things that we achieved this year go beyond win-loss record."

Seabury finished with a 6-5 record, the first winning campaign in school history.

Seahawk golfer misses qualifying for state

Iola -- Lawrence Seabury Academy's Matt Parker shot a 96, and missed by just one stroke of qualifying for the state meet in Monday's Class 2A-1A regional golf tourney at Cedarbrook GC.

Seabury's other competitors were Adam Davis (101), Steven King (108) and Gary Garner (142). Eammon Krusich of Pittsburg Colgan was medalist with a 79.
