The shorthanded Lady Bruins, due to a concert, traveled to Southwood on Wednesday night only to come up just short in a 3-2 loss to the Lady Knights. Tori Baker and Audrey Foster were able to win for the second night in a row. At 1 singles, Tori made it look easy in the beginning winning her 1st set 6-0. Her opponent gave her more of a challenge in the second set, but she was able to pull away in the end, winning it 6-4. At 2 singles, Audrey played three sets for the second night in a row. After losing the 1st set she was able to win the next two sets and give the Lady Bruins their 2nd point of the night.
The 1 doubles team of Ashley Willman/Skylar Stephens also went three sets. After the teams split the first 2 sets, Southwood was able to come away with a win in the 3rd set and the 3rd and deciding point in the team match. Brittaney Dillon came up short at her 2 singles match as did the 2 doubles team of Caitlin Morgan/Brianna Elkins. Caitlin and Brianna were playing their first ever varsity match and gained valuable experience.
