EAGLE TENNIS: Our Eagles beat Berkner 10-2 in the semifinal round. They faced off to a very determined Lake Highlands team in the finals. Eagles held strong and played tough. After doubles, Richardson was behind in match count 3-4. Eagles took it to the court in singles and made a statement showing that we weren’t out of this yet. On the boys side, they swept every singles match, taking it to 9-4, with only one match to win it all. At the 4 singles girls and up in a set at 3 and 4 singles girls spot, Eagles were able to take the 10th win and winning the tournament, advancing us to the area tournament as the runner up District champs.
