Last weekend's tennis match against the visiting Cortez Lady Panthers did not end in a victory for Cedaredge, but there were athletes who were having fun while competing in a life-time activity.
Cortez, a higher classification of school, had its way overall with a team victory.
There were some close matches, but Cortez came away with a 5-2 win on the Delta courts at Cleland Park.
The one singles match went to Cortez with Hope Shaw falling in two straight sets as did Anastasia Burgess at two singles.
Brianna Henrie could not reel in her opponent either and lost 0-6 and 3-6.
Cedaredge's one doubles team of Jessica Chavalier and Danielle Johnson lost their match by scores of 3-6 and 1-6.
In one of the closest matches of the day, Cedaredge's Andrea Bray and Madison Hulteen lost the opening set 6-7 and rebounded for a 9-7 second-set win. The third set went to Cortez 0-6.
One of the wins for the Lady Bruins came in three doubles action when Ashleigh Balistreri and Ashlee Love defeated their opponents 6-3 and 6-4.
Katie O'Hern and Sierra McHugh had a big lead over their Cortez counterparts and went on to win that match to make the final score 5-2.
