MIDLOTHIAN — The Midlothian Heritage tennis team defeated Godley 18-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 26. The only loss came during the mixed doubles when the Jaguars had to forfeit due to injury.

Head tennis coach Lexi Webster said junior Abby Vargas was ready to step in and did a great job in singles.

"There's nothing like a home match," Webster added. "The energy at the courts is electric, and it's just super special to see the parents, friends, and staff out there cheering on this team."

On Saturday, Sept. 23, members from the Heritage tennis teams participated in the USTA "Children Helping Children" tournament, benefitting Children's Health.
