The Robert F. Munroe Day School tennis team upended district foe John Paul II Catholic High School at The Golf Cub of Quincy last week.  The team took three singles and both doubles matches to win by a 5-2 score.

In singles action, No. 1 player Hilary Flournoy, a freshman, won handily 6-1, 6-2 as did No. 2 Beth Summerford, 6-0, 6-0.  The two girls then teamed up and dominated in doubles 8-2.  Abigail Lewis lost 6-4,6-2 at the No. 3 slot but Cameron McMullen picked up the No. 4 spot, winning 6-2 in game one and 6-4 in game two.  

The doubles team of Lewis and McMullen won 8-2 in No. 2 doubles competition.  Rachel Wilkerson dropped her fifth slot singles match 6-4, 6-1 but by then the team still had enough win to take the match.

The win moved the team to 4-4 on the season as they have one week of spring break, followed by one more week of competition before heading into district competition April 13 and 14 at Maclay.
