Senior #1 player Theodora Avramidis (Vernon, N.J. / Vernon Township) and # 4 Laura lin (Palmyra, Pa. / Susquehanna Township) won a few games in their singles constes, but as a whole the Lions were outmatched acroos the board. In doubles, the #1 pair of Avramidis/ Stephanie Harnden(Hershey, Pa. / Hershey) nd #2 pair of Lin/ Morgan Acker(Annville, Pa. / Annville-Cleona) both fell with 8-2 losses.
