    Thanks to the school district for upgrading the lights for softball. It would be nice if the school district would install lights for the tennis teams in Escambia county. It is an embarrassment that our students can’t complete their matches within the county because they run out of daylight. So they try to schedule the first half of the season “away” in Santa Rosa county where they laugh at our clear lack of investment in tennis.
