NEWTON — McPherson Middle School’s girls tennis team finished the dual portion of its schedule undefeated and unchallenged on Thursday.
The Bullpups swamped Newton 23-1 as all their dual matches this season were lopsided.
“I was very pleased with how all of the girls played today,” MMS coach Ricardo Sanchez said. “One thing we talked about before the dual was that I wanted us all to refocus on some of our goals for the season, as I felt we had lost a little focus in the last week. The girls responded by playing some of their best tennis of the season. I loved how well they worked with their doubles partners and then how focused they all were during their singles matches.”
Tuesday is the Pioneer League Tournament at Derby.
“We have a couple of practices before then, I want to make sure to get the girls ready to play up to their potential for the last tournament of the season,” Sanchez said.
