The Dragons (8-0) will travel to Fairview on Saturday morning to take on the Fairview Tigers.
"Fairview has won the District 10 Team Championship for the last eleven seasons," said Warren coach Jeff Bartsch. "And to be honest about it, We are tired of them dominating the league. Fairview has recently added two players to their line-up in preparation for their match with Warren. Our kids are pumped-up and ready to go. Starting time is eleven o'clock at the high school outdoor tennis facility."
"We have a very good squad and they know that we have top talent and plenty of depth," added Dziendziel.
