On Monday, the Greencastle girls' tennis team defeated Owen Valley 3-2 on the road. The Tiger Cubs will again face the Patriots in the second match of the Northview Sectional Friday.
"I'm glad we were able to get this match in. I kind of felt it was more important than perhaps the Danville or the Rockville match that we lost from rainouts," GHS head coach Trish Lowe.
Greencastle's double teams were perfect on the evening, picking up two crucial wins for GHS. Savannah Provine and Carol LaFoe won at No. 1 doubles 6-0 and 6-1, while Kristen Flint and Emma Kaiser won their No. 2 doubles matchup 6-4 and 6-2.

Marta Torre fell in straight sets the Patriots' Henson, 6-1 and 6-2.
Kate Babbington started strong; taking the first set 6-3 but fell behind in the second set, ultimately losing 6-1. She lost the final set 6-4.
