The Wellsboro Boys Tennis team rattled off their 9th consecutive win following a 6-1 victory over Bloomsburg on Thursday, April 18.

"We put in another strong performance from all 9 players on our roster," head coach Margery Hoffman said. "We performed very well at all lines. The last three matches were very tight. The first doubles was well executed and fun to watch, even though we ended up on the short end of the points in the super-tiebreaker. I was especially pleased with our first year players who raised the caliber of their shots to win their matches."
