  • RFM tennis team suprises

    The Robert F. Munroe tennis team lost three starters to graduation last season and were not expecting a strong 2010 showing.

    But the return of Hilary Flournoy, a ninth grader who plays the tennis circuit, was huge.  Flournoy stepped into the No. 1 slot previously held for 5 years by Meg Summerford.  Flournoy’s return combined with an already strong Beth Summerford, the improvement of senior Abby Lewis, and the hard work of underclassmen Cameron McMullen, Rachel Wilkerson and Audrey Thomas, propelled the team into the Class A District finals Wednesday.

The remaining two games were hard fought. The two teams they lost to placed first and second in the entire tournament.
