Danville aiming for another tennis title


The Atkins tennis courts, on the University of Illinois campus, will get a workout this weekend.

The Big 12 Conference girls’ tennis tournament will be held at the facility, starting with first-round doubles matches on Friday at 2:30 p.m.

The singles portion of the tournament will start Saturday at 8:30 a.m. The first four flights will be contested at Atkins. Flights five and six will be held at Urbana’s Blair Park.

Saturday’s session should conclude by 3 p.m.

Danville is chasing a fourth consecutive conference crown. The Vikings’ Rachael and Rebecca Lewis are the returning champions at No. 1 doubles.

Before Danville started its current reign, Normal Community won six straight Big 12 girls’ tennis titles.
