Losing one of the best players in school history, Anna Loureiro, to graduation is going to be tough on Sandburg’s girls tennis team.

The four-year state qualifier and Sandburg’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2018-2019 is at West Point, but the Eagles still have an army of returning players with Illinois High School Association state tournament experience.

They were all on display on Saturday, Sept. 7, as the Eagles won the eight-team Ottawa Invitational with 37 points. Ottawa took second with 23, and Geneseo claimed third with 22.
