The Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis team lost its two Saturday matches, but it earned a victory on Tuesday.
After a quick change in scheduling, Fredericksburg played Abilene High School and San Angelo Central on Saturday instead of playing dual matches against San Angelo Central and Kerrville Tivy like originally planned.
The change in scheduling gave the Billies a chance to play against larger schools and to challenge themselves, head coach Randall King said.
Fredericksburg dropped both of its matches in Kerrville, but King found a positive takeaway as FHS played some of its best tennis of the year on Saturday, he said.
The Battlin’ Billies lost to Abilene 10-9 and San Angelo Central 10-1.
Earlier in the week, the Billies traveled to Llano to square off against Copperas Cove. The Billies took that match 10-1.
