Girls Junior Varsity Tennis, Girls Varsity Tennis · Tennis Team to Host 8-Team Invitational on Saturday

Delta will host the eight-team Delta Invitational girls’ tennis tournament on Saturday, April 29 — unless Mother Nature says no.

The 17th-ranked Eagles (8-1) will battle in a strong field that includes 10th-ranked Fort Wayne Carroll and 16th-ranked Hamilton Southeastern.

The invitational begins at 8:45 a.m. Saturday with matches at Delta and at Yorktown.

At Delta, the host Eagles will face Brown County, also the Eagles, in an 8:45 a.m. opener.  FW Carroll and Muncie Burris also play at the same time.

At Yorktown, the host Tigers will face Warsaw, also the R=Tigers, in an 8:45 a.m. opener.  Hamilton SE and Madison-Grant also play at the same time.

Semifinal rounds are planned for 11:15 a.m., with final rounds starting after 2 p.m.

A strong chance of rain could put a damper on the day’s action.  Last year’s tournament unfortunately was rained out.

Next week, Delta continues a busy schedule.  The Eagles travel to Yorktown on Tuesday evening for the annual SmashCancer match at 4:30 p.m.  They then travel to rival Marion on Wednesday and to Pendleton Heights on Thursday before hosting last year’s State Runner-Up South Bend St. Joseph’s on Saturday.
