“Having as deep a team as we have is key for weeks like this where we have five matches,” Gulf Coast coach Sam Blackburn said. “Everybody got to play on this trip and did really, really well. They don’t take any team lightly, and they were ready from start to finish.”


Gulf Coast (4-0, 4-0 MACCC) has now won 24 straight matches against MACCC opposition. Northeast (0-4, 0-4) is fielding its first tennis team since 2017.


The Bulldogs are back in action Friday when East Central visits. First serves are set for 2 p.m.
