On opening match, Lady Eagle Tennis Coach Lil Andrews said, “A satisfactory opening match. Got past the first match “nerves” as Yeargan and Edwards/Martin came from behind to win. Team had not hit a ball for several day due to bad weather and it showed.”

Eagle Coach Jamie Smith said, “Season opener found some great performances by young players. A big win by freshman Bradley Clark and Brandon Newell in doubles. Garrett Hall, senior is injured, which hurt us overall.  Look forward to Garrett being cleared to play.”
