Tennis, beach volleyball still on winning path

Xavier Prep picked up spring sports victories in tennis and beach volleyball on Wednesday (April 3).

The tennis Gators defeated Phoenix Desert Vista 7-2 at Xavier and the beach volleyball team took a 5-0 road win over Anthem Boulder Creek.

Tennis is due to play again on Thursday (April 4) at Chandler Basha. Beach volleyball’s scheduled match against Phoenix Sunnyslope on Friday (April 5) was cancelled, so the Gators’ next match will be on April 10 with a road contest against Scottsdale Desert Mountain.

The club lacrosse team also faced a late cancellation for its home match against Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep. It also will be played on April 10 at 6:30 p.m.
