Alton Coach Jesse Macias said: “Like everyone else, we had a rough week with night practices and indoor training because of the heat. The girls were great about everything, but it was nice to get back to tennis. We brought two full teams and had twelve girls get a lot of quality matches this weekend.
"Everyone played well. Lilly, Jenna and Grace were outstanding in singles and Lauren and Scarlett are working well together in doubles. We needed this tournament.”
Alton returns to the courts Tuesday at home against Jersey.
