Middleton tennis sweeps past Cougars
Middleton High showed off its girls tennis talent at Palmer Park on Thursday afternoon.
The Cardinals swept host Janesville Craig, 7-0, in a Big Eight Conference match.
"It's Middleton," said Craig coach Bill Peyer. "They are the class of the conference."
The Cougars won nine games in the seven matches.
"We just couldn't match them every shot," Peyer said. "We hung in there and fought hard."
The Cougars, 2-5 in the Big Eight, play at Janesville Parker on Tuesday.
