Demopolis High Schools tennis teams hosted Sipsey Valley on Monday in their first match since before spring break.

The boys team won in a clean sweep 9-0 over the Bears. This match was rescheduled from earlier in the year due to a rainout, and five of the six seeds on the girls team missed the match because of cheerleading tryouts. The girls fell to the Lady Bears 5-3.
