If the MCIAC girls’ and boys’ tennis tournament held Thursday and Friday at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala showed us anything, it’s that parity reigns on Marion County’s tennis courts.

At the two-day event, five district schools competed for the girls’ crown and six for the boys’ crown.

The girls were tied until the last game. A point separated the top three teams, with Vanguard eventually finishing first with 14 points, Forest second with 13 points, and West Port third with 12.

“As far as I can remember, this is the closest girls’ tournament we’ve ever had,” said Lori Croi, who has been Forest girls’ tennis coach for nine years.
