Over the weekend head coach Kim Costley led Mexico into the the five-team School of the Osage varsity Tennis Tournament and when it was all said and done the program had placed first with a score of 15.
"We went to the Osage Tournament and they changed the format back to two singles and two doubles team per school," said Costley. "I was pleased with our play throughout the tournament. The tournament is not flighted, so everyone plays in the same bracket. It was a very hot day."
Coming in second for this event last Saturday was Osage with a score of 14.5, Willow Springs was a distant third with five and a half points, Richland's score was five and Boonville rounded things out with two points.
"Grace (Wortmann) dominated her doubles opponents as she didn’t lose a game in any of her matches," Costley said. "I was super proud of how the doubles teams played as they upset several teams and both teams finished in the top four."
