Desert Edge (#24) fell to Moon Valley (#18) on the road by a score of 2-7 in its final match of the season. Lady Scorpions #2 Melissa Leor continued adding to her all-time singles wins record with a 21-15, 21-14 over the Rocket’s Ariana Spencer. DE’s #3 doubles team of Sophia Walton/Neireda Swanson knocked off #3 Rockets tandem of Emily Riddle/Lily Flores 21-15, 13-21, 21-19 classic. As year three of the program came to a close, Desert Edge improved leaps and bounds, rising 12 places in the Division II rankings, to finish its highest ever team placement this season.
