Girls tennis:

Junior Carol Lei uses her racket to pick the ball up in a match against Homestead HS. The HHS coach cited league rules to order MVHS players who were not in uniform to forfeit. Most players were wearing outfits they felt were more appropriate for the weather. After a compromise, only two athletes were forced to forfeit, as MVHS lost 3-4.
