“Kids have worked hard at practice and the results are starting to show,” boys coach Rachelle Huxford said. “With every match they are getting more experience under their belt. I’m super happy with the results and their progress. They will only get better from here on out.”

Defeating Basic 11-7, sophomore Bennet Forney finished 3-0 in singles play, while senior Roman Rose finished 2-1.

In doubles play, juniors Luke Wright and Sean Pendleton finished 3-0, while sophomores Logan Borg and Shane Barrow finished 2-1.

In singles play, seniors Emma Wood and Ariel Chapman each finished 2-1, along with junior Ava Gibson.
