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.
â€śWest Fargo took second in the State Tournament last year and didnâ€™t lose any players,â€ť Valley City head coach Matthew Nielson said. â€śTheir 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€ť
