IOWA CITY– The grand opening of the new tennis courts at Iowa City West High School was accompanied by a 9-0 win for the West High Women of Troy over North Scott.
“It was a gray day so we even had the new lights turned on!” Coach Amie Villarini said. “The courts were really nice to play on and we expect to get our new windscreens soon,” she added. “With the eight courts it’s nice to be able to put on some extra matches for players who are farther down in the lineup.”
