The Ripon High School girls’ tennis team swung into practice Tuesday afternoon at the tennis courts across from Ingalls Field.

The team, which once again will be under the leadership of Breck Speers, Brent Sanderfoot and Jocelyn Hoeper, has a little more than a week to get ready for its first match as it will travel Tuesday, Aug. 20 to Kewaunee for a meet. It will follow that up with a quadrangular Wednesday, Aug. 21 at McFarland, a meet with Kewaskum Thursday, Aug. 22 and a triangular Friday, Aug. 23 at Kaukauna.

A season preview and recap of the Kewaunee meet will run in next week’s edition of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.
