In doubles, Kayla Nicol and Meghan McCallum picked up wins against Stevi but lost to their Dillon opponents. Names were not available for the opponents.

“Kayla and Meaghan had a nice come from behind win against Stevi’s best doubles team, and Anna Pickard stepped up to our No. 2 slot in singles and really competed against some older, more experienced players,” girls coach Gene Marcille said.
