Girls and Boys Tennis Take Down St. Anne Pacelli for First Area-1 Victory

MACON, Ga. – The FPD varsity girls and boys tennis teams were in action on Monday afternoon, hosting St. Anne Pacelli (Columbus, Ga.) at the John Drew Smith Tennis Center with both squads picking up key Area-1 victories.

In the girls match, FPD hung on for a 3-2 victory.

The Lady Vikings were able to gain a default win followed by two clinching doubles wins, the first from Summer Sanders and Lizzie Reed over Auer/Silver 6-0, 6-0.

FPD’s other doubles win came via the rackets of Dallis Foshee and Brynna Wilson, who calimed 6-0, 6-0 wins over Funderburk/Lee of Pacelli.

The girls win is FPD’s (1-3, 1-0) is FPD’s first on the 2016 campaign.

The varsity boys (4-0, 1-0 Area-1) kept their unbeaten streak alive, snagging a 3-2 win over Pacelli.

After a Camden County Invitational victory from this past weekend, FPD was able to earn one singles and doubles victory via default and used one doubles team win to claim the match.

That doubles team consisted of Eliel Ramirez and Josh Wilson, who defeated Auer/Landry in shutout fashion 6-0, 6-0.

The varsity tennis teams return to the courts on Thursday, March 3, traveling to Milledgeville, Ga. for a non-region match against GMC Prep.

First serve is set for 3:30 p.m.
