Desert Edge High School vs Apollo High School
2 7

VARSITY:
The very young Lady Scorpions opened the season on the road at Apollo HS, taking 2 of 3 doubles matches over the Hawks. With only one returner from last year’s team, and everyone else never playing competitive badminton before at the high-school level, the Lady Scorpions showed their mental toughness and grit across the board.
