STEVENS POINT – The Stevens Point Pacelli girls tennis team continued its undefeated streak through the Great Northern Conference, winning a pair of matches on Monday and Tuesday at the Goerke Park Courts.
Pacelli whipped Phillips 7-0 on Monday and edged Wausau Newman Catholic 4-3 on Tuesday to run its record to a perfect 6-0 in the conference duals this fall.
