The Benson girls tennis team closed out the regular-season with three-straight wins to raise its record to 15-5 heading into the postseason. The Braves are having one of the top 10 seasons in girls tennis history this year with a win total that has been topped only seven times in the past 35 years.
The Braves started out 8-2 this season, but then went 1-3 over their next four matches with losses to Minnewaska Area, Melrose Area, and MACCRAY, before winning their last six-straight to end the regular-season.
