The Sherman tennis team suffered a 14-5 non-district loss against McKinney North on Friday, the first loss of the season for the Bearcats.

“McKinney North is a top 15 team in the state in 5A year after year. We played extremely well winning 5 matches and several others going into tie breaks,” Sherman head coach Rodney Pilcher said. “This is very positive going into district play next week.”

Kaitlyn Ryan, Kaitlin Catellier, Bre Brand-Pulliam and Kaitlin Caver earned victories on the girls side while Daniel Lopez and Avery Kahl won on the boys side.

The Bearcats travel to Sulphur Springs today at 3:30 p.m.
