Raider Tennis scored a great win over conference rival Speedway Thursday at Riverside Park 3-2. Singles standouts Nathan Sepe and Josh Christian scored wins at 1 and 2 singles; 2 doubles dominated again. Coach Rubey said of the win, “I am so proud of how our team represented and how they absorb their instructions on court and implement our tactics and strategies. While we lost at 1 doubles and 3 singles, all 3 players fought hard in the second sets and kept fighting until the last point.”
