Dylan Howard, Yukon boys tennis: Howard was in the midst of a breakout season before the coronavirus pandemic ended all high school sports in the state. A four-year letterman, Howard was Yukon’s team captain and No. 1 doubles player. He had top-10 finishes in doubles during tournaments at Carl Albert and Owasso before the season was canceled. Howard isn’t sure if he will compete in college. Coach Barney Moon said Howard might coach at Yukon next year. “He actually wants to come out and contribute next year because he didn’t get to finish his senior year,” Moon said.
