Ashley Creek returns one in her
 singles match against Salem.
The Licking Wildcats hosted the Salem Tigers on Thursday, April 11. The Tigers took the match, led by some veteran talent and some new upcoming players in the program. Many of the Wildcats posted wins but Tristen Melton lead the way in singles for the Wildcats. He played his best match of the year but lost a close 6-8 match.
The Wildcats then traveled to Mountain View-Liberty on Friday, April 12, to face the Eagles. Licking was unable to pull out a win but looks to compete with Liberty in the future. Aubrie Stephens played the best she had all year in her single and doubles matches. She did a great job of competing and the coach was very proud of her leadership.
The Wildcats then traveled to Willow Springs to face the best or second best team in our district. We did not win but faced a very strong team and still competed.
I am proud of our effort this season and the team continues to improve. We have three regular season matches left before district competition.
