Republic Makes Quick Work of Waynesville in District Opener (Photos)

Republic needed just over an hour to sweep Waynesville 5-0 in its team district tennis opener. The Lady Tigers won all three doubles matches to open the night. Elsie Crawford and Abby McCord both quickly finished their singles matches to clinch the overall victory, stopping play for the remaining matches.

Republic, seeded second in the district, improves to 15-2 overall. The Lady Tigers will play in the district semifinal Tuesday at home.
