The Lady Bobcat Tennis Team pulled off one of their biggest upsets ever as they played extremely well in taking down a very good Southwestern team with a 3-2 victory. This is the same Southwestern team that had beaten annual division champion Dallastown just a week ago.
All the lady Cats played like heroes as everyone gave it everything they had in this great effort!

of skills before losing to a very strong opponent.

Third singles, Brynn MacDonald got the Cats on the board as she brought her exciting, slashing game into full force and won 6-1; 6-2 over a good opponent
Jiselle Castano teamed up with Madison Laughman in the crucial first doubles match as they overcome several efforts by Southwestern and came out on top in a key match to knot the team score at 2-2 with a very impressive 6-4; 6-4 victory.
With the match in the balance, it came down to Aubrey Shaffer and Taylor Forry whose score in the second set was knotted at 5-5 after Aubrey and Taylor had won the first set 6-3. As they continued to raise their level of play, they clinched this historic victory with a 7-5 win.
