The LHS Lady Bruins tennis team dropped their first  match of the season to region leader Clover 5-2 on Wednesday night in Lancaster.

The lone wins for the Lady Bruins came from the top of the ladder with Lyndsey Hegler at No. 1 singles and Sara Hicks at No. 2 singles.

Hegler and Hicks continue to play well and remain undefeated in singles play this season with 6-0 records.

“While the result of the match was a disappointment, I feel that we have pinpointed a few areas that need some work and hope to regain some momentum next week with three region matches,” LHS coach Phil Dewalt said.

The team is next in action against region foe Nation Ford on Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Lancaster.

The Lady Bruins now sit at 5-1 overall with a strong 4-1 record in the region.
