Quality over quantity.
The Westview boys tennis team may be small in number, but it made a big splash during its opening match on Friday.
Despite having just two players, the Charger boys swept all three of their matches against Crockett County.
However, the Cavaliers were declared the overall victors via way of the forfeit of the other four matches.
On the girls’ side, Westview fell by a 5-2 margin.
The Charger tennis squads returned to the court on Monday at home vs. Gibson County.
That game will be in Thursday’s edition of The Press. The W’view tennis teams head to Union City this afternoon.
In boys’ action on Thursday, Tanner Spencer and Ethan Plunk both were victorious by an 8-5 margin over their respective opponents — William Northern and Lucas Bushart.
Spencer and Plunk also combined for a doubles victory by an 8-6 count over Northern and Bushart.
