Eagle tennis

The Fort Dale girls tennis team swept Monroe Academy 7-0 at home on March 14, and lost to Morgan Academy 2-5 in Selma on March 16. The boys team beat Monroe 6-1 and fell to Morgan 0-7. “We had a tough loss against a very talented Morgan team,” reported tennis coach Jennie Hamilton. “Brody Stringer (boys first seed) played exceptionally, losing an incredibly close match with the first set lost in a tiebreaker. Maire Scott (girls first seed) was our lone singles winner, beating the Senators’ first seed in a 3rd set tiebreaker. Maire and Claire Hutson also won convincingly at first seed doubles.” Fort Dale tennis plays at home again on March 28 and March 31.
