Hi-Liner girls tennis was in West Fargo on Tuesday for a cold and windy Eastern Dakota Conference match from which the Packers took a sunny 8-1 win.
âWest Fargo took second in the State Tournament last year and didnât lose any players,â Valley City head coach Matthew Nielson said. âTheir top five players are seniors this year. They are a great team, and coach Chad Anderson does a great job with his program. The Packers won their first three EDC matches 9-0, and not only did we give them their first loss to go 8-1, but we also won a set at No. 1 Doubles, No. 2 Doubles and No. 2 Singles.â
