Moss Point Match
The PHS tennis team had a good run on the courts Tuesday night against Moss Point High School. Match play began at 4:00 in an attempt to get all play completed before the threat of rain stopped play. The rain held off but the wind was a definite factor throughout the night. Wind gusts of 20 mph made it difficult at times to control the flight of the tennis ball. Despite the extremely windy conditions, Poplarville finished the night with several individual wins as well as a team win. The match against Moss Point was the first District Match of the year.
