Andalusia’s boys tennis team beat Enterprise 9-0 for the series sweep Tuesday at the LBWCC tennis courts.

The last time the Bulldogs (6-1) faced the Wildcats was on Tues., March 8. They won their match 9-0.

“It was a good chance for our guys to play,” AHS boys tennis coach Perry Dillard said. “Usually Enterprise is good year in and year out.

“Enterprise is really young, and we’re really young, too,” he said. “Tennis is kind of like golf. Once you have played somebody and beat them, you know them. We felt confident that we would get out there, and do those same things again.”

In girls action, the Lady Bulldogs lost 8-1.
