On Thursday April 25th the Edsel Ford Thunderbirds hosted conference opponent Allen Park Jaguars. The Jaguars have been a tennis power for years and today was a prime example of that. The Thunderbirds have to treat this match as a learning lesson on what it takes to compete with the top schools. The T-birds competed their hardest and can hold their chins up even though the result of the match was not in their favor.
Results from the match were:
1 EF Zaineb Al-Asady Grade 11 lost to AP Bethany Posey Grade 12 6-0, 6-0
2 EF Daekotah Mcfarland Grade 12 lost to AP Ashley Stanley Grade 10 6-1 6-2

The Thunderbirds will hope to fare better against the Jaguars in the Regionals and Downriver League meet at the end of the season. For now the T-Birds next opponent will be a non-conference match against the Fordson Tractors. Goodluck and GO T-BIRDS !!!
