JV netters rate trophies; rain hinders varsity play
A Spring Break tennis tournament hosted by the Marlin tennis team for varsity and junior varsity went well on Thursday, March 8, when the JV played. Friday, March 9, however, was a different story as the varsity players took to the court.
“We fought the drizzle and mist all day long Friday. We were out squeegying for about three hours throughout the day,” said coach Dante Cage.
“All of the teams were very patient with the weather,” he said.
The varsity goes to Goliad on Friday, March 23, and returns on March 30 for a trimatch, which will be the last tournament before district on April 2-3 in Port Aransas.
