STAUNTON – Fort Defiance’s girls tennis team recorded six consecutive 8-0 shutouts in singles, and went on to defeat Robert E. Lee 9-0 Wednesday in a Valley District match.
Fort (10-4) hosts Turner Ashby on Thursday while Lee (2-10) is at Harrisonburg on Friday.“Any time you have an experienced team playing against an inexperienced one, unless the experienced team makes a lot of unforced errors, the score is going to be lopsided,” Fort coach John Edgecomb said. “Lee showed a lot of growth since the first time we played, but today we made very few errors.”
