It was a weekend to remember for the Jacksonville College men's and women's tennis teams as the squads, who are in their first year of existence, won back-to-back home matches over the weekend.
On Friday the Jaguars and Lady Jaguars mauled tennis teams from Louisiana College (NCAA, Division III), as each JC unit won 9-0.
Then on Saturday afternoon the Jags and Lady Jags came right back and won easily over Houston Community College.
Final score in the men's match was 7-2, while the JC ladies coasted to a 6-2 win (one doubles match was scratched due to weather conditions).
Both matches took place at the Jacksonville High School Tennis Complex.
JC tennis traveled to Longview yesterday to take on another NCAA Division III foe, LeTourneau University.
Results from that match will be included in an upcoming edition of the Daily Progress.
The Jag and Lady Jag netters each took a 3-3 record into play Tuesday.
A busy week continues on Friday for the JC tennis team.
That’s when the Jags/Lady jags will face Seminole (Okla.) Community College at 2 p.m. at Tyler Junior College.
The JC netters are not slated to paly in Jacksonville until Mar. 29 when Lone Star College-Cy fair comes calling for a 4 p.m. match.
