KENNETT, Mo. - The Kennett varsity girls tennis team suffered a 5-4 loss to the visiting Notre Dame Bulldogs Tuesday afternoon.

Kennett, which suffered an 8-1 loss to Notre Dame two weeks ago, managed to win two singles and two doubles matches in the second head-to-head meeting with undefeated Notre Dame.

“We had a much better effort today,” Kennett coach Janet Hilburn said. “All the girls were very tenacious and aggressive. I was very proud of the way we played. A win would have been great but I can tell we have improved a lot since the first match of the season against Notre Dame.”

Notre Dame also won five of seven junior varsity matches against Kennett.

Kennett (4-2) hosts Caruthersville Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Notre Dame (5-0) hosts Jackson Wednesday at 4 p.m.
