MOUNT AIRY — Forbush closed out its regular tennis season Monday night with a loss to North Surry.

It hasn’t been the greatest season for Forbush (3-11, 3-7 WPAC), who matched its 2014 win total with two wins against Carver, and a close 5-4 win against West Stokes. Next up for Forbush is the WPAC conference tournament, and unless they win that, it’s highly unlikely they’ll be state tournament bound.

The team of 12 has seven seniors, but behind them are five freshmen. The lack of anything in-between with no sophomore or juniors might mean a learning experience for 2016, but also means there are still three years for those five freshman to learn. These seniors being honored for their four years include captains Alisha Baity and Carmen Wilkes, Aileen Rosales, Jasmine Evans, Olivia Felk, Victoria Wingler, and Whitley Crater.
