That's where Israel Garcia of Jacksonville took Nathan Baum to three sets before going down (3-6, 6-4, 5-7).

Ellie Day, Kristie Savage, Carolina Hernandez and Maria Landin were all winners for Jacksonville in girls singles.

Landin &  Carolina Hernandez and the tandem of Suzi McCuistion & Cesia Hernandez posted two-set wins in girls doubles for Tribe tennis.

Jacksonville is back in action Tuesday when Lindale comes in for a 4 p.m. match, which will also serve as a league affair.

NOTES: Corsicana (2-0) currently leads the 16-4A standings...Jacksonville, Whitehouse, Lindale and Nacogdoches are in a log jam for second place at 1-1...With an 0-2 record, John Tyler is occupying the basement in the league rankings...Corsicana's wins have been over Lindale and Whitehouse.

    One would probably be hard pressed to find any summer youth sports camp with a more streamlined approach than was found at the Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden Basketball camp, which took place this week at the Jacksonville High School Gymnasium.

    “We just asked the young ladies for two things,” Tony Harris, Jacksonville High School head girl's basketball coach, stated on Wednesday. “First, we wanted them to have fun and secondly we wanted them to learn control — to be able to control their eyes, their body and the (opposing) defender.”
