Lampasas Badger Varsity Tennis won 12-7 over Taylor on Saturday. With this win, the team is 2-0 in district, with a default from Leander Glen, who’s in our district but doesn’t have enough players.

The varsity tennis team goes to Burnet on Thursday the 29th with matches beginning at 4pm. Coach Kenneth Peiser said that Burnet recently fell to both Taylor and Liberty Hill 10-0 because they were unable to fill a team as well, but still want to play, and that Saturday’s win pretty much clinches the District Championship.

Peiser said that the kids played great Saturday and “all of them were pumped and ready to play.  We will have our last week of challenge matches and work on more net play this week in preparation for Thursday and our future area match.”
