The Elk County Catholic Crusader tennis team handed the St. Marys Area Flying Dutch squad an 8-1 loss Friday afternoon at the SMAHS courts. This was the completion of a match that began last Thursday but was halted by rain.
â€śThis was a good, quality win for us. St. Marys always is a challenge and we were able to overcome them today,â€ť said ECCHS coach Nick Caggiano. â€śFor the most part we looked sharp. On clay you have to be very aware and alert and I think we accomplished that today.â€ť
