The Class A District 2 tennis districts for were held last week at Maclay School and the Munroe team finished in  second place. 

Runner-up Coach Carolyn Summerford  and her team of six headed to South Walton Beach to take on the very strong District 1 champions at  South Walton High. 

Finishing second in a tough district in a sport that only has two classifications is no small feat. 

But Tuesday will most likely end the impressive tennis career of Meg Summerford.  Summerford inherited the No. 1 slot 3 years ago from Mandy Clark who held the spot for 7 years. The two of them held down No. 1 at Munroe for a decade.  

The team will also lose the third slot player Anna Dooner and fourth slot player Ivie Thomas to graduation. 

Freshmen Beth Summerford and Rachel Wilkerson, along with junior Abby Lewis, will return

The team finished 5-3 in the regular season.
