Tanager tennis squad shutout Saturday

Vermillion’s Audrey Miiller

A team that includes three sophomores, an eighth grader and three seventh graders – only two of whom are returnees from last year's team – can be expected to take their lumps for awhile this season.

The Vermillion girls tennis team opened their difficult schedule with three shutout losses Saturday at a quadrangular in Yankton.  The Tanagers were the victims of Watertown, Yankton and Rapid City Stevens by 9-0 scores.

Next action for VHS will be at home against Madison on Sept. 4 at 4 p.m.
