The Ringgold girls tennis team opened the season Monday afternoon with a 4-1 non-section victory over visiting California.
The Lady Trojans have only six girls on the roster so they had to forfeit No. 3 singles to the Lady Rams’ Alexis Davis.
Ringgold’s Julia Corey needed three sets to defeat Racquel Rhodes at No. 2 singles, 6-0, 2-6, 6-2.
The Lady Rams’ Abbey Powell and Leah Fleming defeated Sydney Ruth and Abigayle Hustava at No. 1 doubles in straight sets, as did the No. 2 tandem of Courtney Berdar and Hannah Brooks.
Sydney Smichnick secured the lone victory for California, winning her No. 1 singles match against Rebecca McIntosh, 6-1, 6-1.
