The Vanguard Middle School Tennis Team played North Belton Middle School at Lake Belton High School on Monday. It was close and came down to the last match to decide which team won. Wins in doubles were scored by Hutson Harper/Chris Xolalpa, Alex Cleveland/Will Lindsey, Luke Willeford/Marc Offill, Finley McCallie/Sabine Shawbaki, and Katherine Bogan/Ella Martinez. In singles, Hutson Harper, Cash Reese, Luke Willeford, Adam Melveney, Hope Hamblin, Sabeen Shawbaki (twice), Katherine Bogan, Ella Martinez, Jordan Young, and Aria Cleveland scored wins. The match came down to Sabeen Shawbaki, who played up in the lineup, substituting for Finley in her second match, since Finley was tied up in a close battle in her first singles match. Sabeen got down 2-5 before she fought her way back into a tiebreaker. She won the tiebreaker 7-1 and scored the deciding point for the Vikings.
The final score was 16-15. The Middle School Tennis Team plays next in the Groesbeck Middle School Tournament on Saturday, April 24th
