ALBIA – The Centerville Redette tennis team picked up an impressive 6-3 victory over Albia on April 15.

Heather Buttel, Katie Berner, Melanie Hermon and Danielle Widmar earned singles victories for the Redettes during the meet.

“Without a doubt, this was one of the best wins for Centerville girls tennis. Albia always puts a good team on the court; Centerville had a better one on the court today,” commented Centerville head coach Barb Climie. “In addition to playing each other the girls were also playing the strong gusty winds.

“If the girls continue working hard, there's a good chance they'll be close to the top of the conference ladder by season's end,” added Climie.

The Redette tennis team is slated to return to the court on Monday, April 28 at home against Fort Madison in a JV/V doubleheader starting at 4:15 p.m.
