VALLEY CENTER — McPherson Middle School’s girls tennis team routed Valley Center 19-1 in a season-opening dual match.

MMS won all 13 singles matches and six of the seven doubles matches.

“For our first dual of the season, the girls all came out excited to play,” said MMS coach Ricardo Sanchez, who has three times as many players as last year. “There were some jitters in some of the doubles matches to begin the dual, but after the girls played a few games they started to settle down. It was great for everyone to get wins and build some confidence.”
