KEYSER - On a brisk and windy day for all involved, to include players and spectators alike, the first Battle of Mineral County, tennis version, took place Thursday as Keyser played host to Frankfort.  

The two schools had squared off earlier in a scrimmage, but this was the first official action between the Golden Tornado and Falcons this year, for both the girls and the boys.

It would end up being a successful and productive day for host Keyser as the Lady Tornado defeated the Lady Falcons in a close, 4-3 contest.  The Lady Tornado took two of four singles matches, and two of the three doubles contests. On the boys’ side, Keyser swept Frankfort by a tally of 7-0, despite many of the matches being very close.  Specific results follow:
