The Carbon High girls tennis team opened their season with a great match against Uintah.

The girls are starting to gel and mature as team and it showed on the court.

But the success came as the girls learned that Price City is looking at closing down the tennis courts in October to possibly build a new swimming pool.

The girls and their families who were on hand to watch are saddened and a bit angry. They played with a new found mission to show the value to the existing courts.

Jaylee Nielsen won 6-1, 6-0. She is the Lady Dinos first singles player. The other two singles players Danielle Oman and Hillary Tupaz lost their matches, but both played hard.

In doubles Elise Vogel and Taran White won their match 6-2 and 6-4. Alex Richens and Lucy Acosta lost a heartbreaker in the second doubles 7-5, 6-4 and 6-4.

"The girls played great today. It looks like we are off to a great start," stated Coach Tom Alleman. "All the girls played hard. The JV players did a great job all of them playing their best."

Alleman was passing out fliers to let all the spectators know about the proposal and about a strategy meeting to try and save the facility on Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. The issue is on the agenda for Price City on Aug. 24 at 5:30 p.m.
