Rider Team Tennis Qualifies for Regionals

The Rider Raider tennis team advanced to Regionals with a 10-2 win over Boswell Wednesday at the Rider Tennis Courts.

They will be the second seed, behind the top-ranked team in the state, Grapevine, who defeated Wichita Falls HS Wednesday in the other Area semifinal match. Since the two teams already played this year, with Grapevine winning, they agreed to bypass an area championship match and both advance.
