Madison Grant defeated our Lady Indian Golfers last night 4-1. Here is Coach Bruce Fleming on the action, “Haleigh Rowley gave the Indians a quick and short-lived lead with her victory at #1 singles. Madison Grant immediately tied the score with a win at #3 singles. The second sets at the remaining three positions were competitive but all favoring the more experienced Argyles.” JV also lost 5-3.

Girls Tennis hosted Muncie Burris last night. Here is what Coach Bruce Fleming had to say, “On Monday, the Ole Miss Tennis team hosted the Owls of Muncie Burris. It was a great match that saw four of the five varsity courts playing three-set matches. With the Indians capturing the #1 singles position in straight sets. all other positions split the first two sets. After Katie Powell and Tyra Stanley won their 3rd set at #1 doubles, Maggie Herring won a traditional third set tie break to give the Indians the team victory.
