MANSFIELD — After being rained out on Monday and Tuesday of this week, the Galion Lady Tigers tennis team traveled to Maple Lake Park in Mansfield to clash with the St. Peter’s Lady Spartans on Wednesday.

Her doubles partner, Kiersten Gifford was slotted at third singles and would earn the victory to the tune of 6-3, 6-2 to earn Galion’s third and clinching point.
