Several Pioneers finish in top five at Bishop Miege.
Three medals and a top four finish is what the Lansing girls' tennis team took home from Mill Valley Saturday.
The Lady Lions' No. 2 doubles team of Savannah Baker and Sydney Chiles went 3-1 at the Jaguars' invitational to capture second place while No. 2 singles Katie Rathjen earned third after finishing 3-1 as well. The No. 1 doubles duo of Alanda Kohl and Valyssa Layton also won third thanks to a 3-1 record.
"We had a nice day overall taking fourth place as a team out of 10 schools," Lansing coach Ed Fenton said. "Things that standout are the two wins we had in tiebreak matches. Katie, Alanda and Valyssa were down in their match and came back to force the tiebreaker where we came out on top."
No. 1 singles player Cheyenne English was 1-2 for the day. Lansing will compete at Baldwin on Thursday at 8:30 a.m.

The Lady Pioneers participated in the 2012 Shawna Guilfoil Tournament Friday at Bishop Miege.
"It was our fisit away tournament of the season and against some pretty stiff competition so I was happy to see some of the results we got," Leavenworth coach Shad Langfoss said.
"We had a lot of tiebreakers that we lost, which is good in one way because it means we are competing, but we want to start winning those more and it's something we are focusing on."
In No. 1 singles action, Anna Salvatorelli finished fifth after going 1-4. Megan Kelly had the same record and placement in the No. 2 singles bracket, as did the Lady Pioneers No. 1 doubles pairing of Meagan Brucker and Sydnie Lundy.
In the No. 2 doubles division, Christina Dominique and Jailyn Settles came in sixth with an 0-5 mark.
The Lady Pioneers will be at Olathe South today at 3:30 p.m.
"If we can pick up a couple of those tiebreakers, we should see our records improve a lot," Langfoss said.
