    The Jaguars lost only nine games in posting a 9-0 victory at Santa Fe Trail Park Monday.
    Leah Bell, Bella Bowling and Tiffany Davenport each prevailed 8-0, Emily Conaty 8-1, Erica McClain 8-2 and Remy Davenport 8-3 in singles. All three doubles triumphs were by an 8-1 score.

    LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 5, BARSTOW 4: Doubles wins by Camryn Parnell and Jenny Krause (8-2) and Beta Lehr and Alexandra Mesias (8-5) clinched the North victory at Barstow Monday.

    “The girls have all been steadily improving each time on the court,” North coach Stu Reece said. “Camryn played her best tennis of the season versus last year’s Class 1 state champ (8-4 loss to Alena Frye). Beta and Alexander were a big key for us winning at No. 3 doubles.”
