Last night the girls' tennis team left Galesburg thunderstruck as they streaked to a 7-2 victory on the road.  Doubles teams of Nan Li/Iman Adam, Nicole Boodhoo/Reese Williams, and Hailey Pappas/Khyrstina Reynolds swept the doubles portion of the meet before the panthers finished the night with victories in 4 of the 6 singles matches.  Special recognition goes out to Nicole Boodhoo for her victory over Galesburg's #1 player in straight sets.  

As a special reminder, all panther fans are encouraged to come out to the Panther Cage on Thursday at 4pm as we send off our seniors Iman, Nan, Haley, Nicole, Rabha, and Mo in style as the team takes on Sterling Newman.  We hope to see you all there!
