The Monett Lady Cubs tennis team fell to Bolivar, 5-4, Tuesday night.
"Our team is improving," said Head Coach Bob Crain. "It was a great effort by our girls. Bolivar has dominated us in recent years. To play them this tough is really a step in the right direction."
In singles play, Nrupa Desai won 8-3. Theresa Mangler and Kaelyn Sperandio also won 8-5 and 8-3.
Mangler and Sperandio won their doubles match 9-7.
The Lady Cubs will host Aurora Thursday.
