The Lady Husky tennis team hopes to keep an impressive streak of outstanding seasons going as they will open the year on August 13 at home against Alleghany.
For eight of the last nine seasons, the Ashe County women’s tennis team has sent a doubles team to the state tournament, and has won the Mountain Valley Conference doubles championship for seven straight years.
After the season opener on Aug. 13, the team will play the next day at home once again, this time battling Forbush.
The team then has a string of three straight road matches at East Wilkes (Aug. 16), at Wilkes Central (Aug. 20) and at Elkin (Aug. 23).
