Lindale's boys delivered like a Pizza Hut deliveryman in Tuesday's District 16-4A match against visiting Jacksonville, winning all of their points, which was enough to give Eagle tennis a 12-7 victory over the Tribe.

Lindale and Jacksonville are now tied for fourth place in the District 16-4A standing, both at 1-2. Jacksonville is 4-6-1 overall.

Highlighting things for the Tribe were the play of the Jacksonville girls.
