Lakeland split a pair of NECC boys tennis decisions earlier this week, bringing its overall season mark to 2-3.

Tuesday night, the Lakers shaded the visiting Eagles of Churubusco, 3-2. Singles wins by Bret Balka and Dalton Svhmidt, along with a doubles triumph forged by Sam Miller and Ian Sonner provided Lakeland with its winning points.
