MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ tennis team took one step closer to an undefeated regular season on Wednesday, when the Tigers edged visiting U-32, 4-3.
The 9-0 Tigers, in a battle with 13-0 South Burlington for the top seed in Division I, are set to wrap up their season by visiting Harwood on Monday. The Tigers defeated the Highlanders, 6-1, earlier this spring.
On Wednesday, the Tigers benefitted from a forfeit at No. 5 singles, but won despite playing without injured No. 2 Jon Fitzcharles, who hurt his ankle two days before.
