The Yazoo City Indian tennis team dropped to 2-3 on the season following last week's 5-2 loss to the Starkville Yellowjackets.
The Indians are now 0-2 in district play after losing a close match to Neshoba Cental, 4-3. They have one district match remaining next week against the Canton Tigers.
The Indians started the season off 2-0 with wins over Callaway and Pearl, before losing their next three matches to Neshoba, Ridgeland and Starkville. With five matches left on the schedule, the Indians have time to right the ship before heading into the district tournament.
"It's been an up and down season but that was to be expected because we've got a lot of new faces this year," said YHS head coach Joffre Washington. "We're working on a shoestring budget with limited resources and some of the teams we play don't have that problem. But I have to play those kinds of teams to get the best competition for my kids. My kids welcome the challenge because they know that in order to be the best, you have to play the best. When you do that, your going to take some lumps, but the alternative is to not really get better."
