The Festus varsity tennis team lost to Bishop DuBourg on Thursday, 8-1. The loss brings the Tigers’ record to 2-3 on the season, and was the second straight loss for the team.
The lone victor on the day was Erica Fletcher (11). Fletcher won her #2 singles match, 8-5. The doubles team of Ryan Esparza (9) and Julia Meyers (10) lost their match 9-7 in a tiebreaker.
“It was a very windy day, and we had difficulty keeping the ball in play,” said head coach Thomas Thomas.
Festus hopes to rebound today as they travel to Windsor for a match with Owls. Start time is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tomorrow, another conference match up, this time at home against DeSoto, is also scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
