Due to wrong information provided to the Jordan Independent, we reported a wrong score last week.

We reported that Jordan lost 3-4 to No. 9 ranked Minnewaska last week, when in fact they won that match 4-3.

Getting wins in that match was Randolph at No. 2 singles (6-1, 6-1), Bounds at No. 3 singles (6-2, 6-3) and Jerabek/Busse at No. 1 doubles (6-2, 6-2) and No. 3 doubles team of Cook/Luskey earning a 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 10-7 victory.
