The Janesville Craig girls tennis team rolled to a 6-1 victory over Madison La Follette in a Big Eight Conference dual meet at Craig.
La Follette’s only winner was No. 1 singles player Annalise Yang, who won the WIAA Division 1 singles title in the alternate fall season last spring.
“This was an important win for us—in fact, in my opinion, a necessary win, and the team handled the pressure like pros,” Craig coach Pam Clutson said in an email. “I’m pleased with the win and very proud of the team effort today.”
Craig climbed to 7-5 overall and 2-5 in Big Eight play with the victory. The Cougars wrap up the regular season next week with matches against Madison East on Tuesday at Palmer Park and at Beloit Memorial on Thursday.
