Dragons tennis

Warren’s girls high school tennis team is undergoing two major changes for the fall of 2014; a co-op for tennis has been formed between the Warren and Eisenhower High School. EHS girls in grades 9-through-12 may now play on the co-op tennis team.

Since 1993, the Dragons have competed with Class AA status in District 10. In that time, the Dragons have won five doubles and singles championships. The new Class AAA schools are Oil City, Central, McDowell, Fairview and now Warren.

“We will still play several of the double-A schools, but triple-A has their own D10 Team Championship Tournament in which the top two schools with the best records will participate,” said Warren girls tennis coach Jeff Bartsch. The einner of that team championship will move on to the PIAA Championships.
