The first true AA match of the season, Belgrade welcomed the Bulldogs to the Marcia Anderson courts. With only one win on each side for the Panthers, we were reminded how much work we have to do before our transition to full AA play in 2019-2020. As a few close matches note, the score could have easily been 3-4 for the girls, while the boys were swept and the only close match was Jackson Thorn hanging tough against Butte High’s #1 singles Aidan Francisco. A great experience for all, learning and humbling to be had all around.
