Back-to-back tennis wins put XCP at 7-0

Xavier Prep’s tennis team continued down its unbeaten path with home victories over Phoenix Sunnyslope (9-0) on Wednesday (March 13) and Phoenix Horizon (8-1) on Thursday (March 14).

Senior Kate Stegman and sophomore Emilia Chrostowski each picked up singles wins in both matches to help raise Xavier’s record to 7-0.

The Gators’ next match should be a bit more challenging. They will face Scottsdale Chaparral (4-0 entering a Tuesday match against Mesa Mountain View) on Thursday (March 21) at Chaparral.
