"He's very organized," McGee said. "He does all sorts of stuff--stats, ball-tossing and he gives feedback too. He's kind of becoming my right-hand guy." It seems to be working. The Vikings are ranked third in Southern Section Division V-AA.

Joe failed to qualify for one of 16 feed-in spots in the 32-player tournament.

Hart rallied after dropping the first four sets, including one by No. 1 singles player Jenny Munroe, to tie Burroughs, 9-9, and beat the three-time defending league champion in games, 76-70, Tuesday at Hart. Hart (10-0, 5-0 in league play) put itself in position to win with solid doubles play, including a 6-1 victory by No.
