ST. LOUIS -- The Charleston Lady Bluejays tennis team went on the road Saturday and played two tough tennis schools - John Burroughs and Clayton - earning two wins in the process.

"It's a good end to the regular season," said Charleston coach Seth Benton. "It was a very nice win against Clayton. The girls played very well."

Charleston defeated Clayton 5-4 with Jordan Duenne, Lindsay Burke and Mary Kate Renaud winning their singles matches. In doubles, Burke and Jade Schwieger won their match as did the team of Allison DeField and Duenne.

Charleston used the momentum of their win against Clayton to defeat John Burroughs 7-2.

"The win against John Burroughs is a bit misleading," Benton said. "They didn't have their usual lineup. We played against some of their lower varsity and upper junior varsity."

Charleston earned singles wins from Schwieger, DeField, Duenne, Burke and Renaud. In doubles, the team of Burke/Schwieger earned a win.

Charleston will be in action again on Thursday when they compete in the district tournament in Sikeston.

"(Saturday's) were good competition to play before Thursday," Benton said.
