The Granbury Pirates took a week off from District 7-4A tennis play and defeated visiting Alvarado 12-7 Tuesday.
“We beat one of the top 3A teams in the state,” said Granbury coach Jeff Bramlett. “Alvarado has beaten some of the top 4A and 5A teams in the area. One of our best all-around performances.”
The Pirates improved to 8-4 overall. They are 3-0 in 7-4A and tied with Aledo for first place.
Granbury is trying to end a seven-year stronghold on the district for the Bearcats. The teams will meet in Granbury on Oct. 8 at 4:30 p.m. in a match that will likely decide the district championship.
