Two of the top area high school girls tennis teams squared off on the Hidden Valley courts last week, as Hidden Valley defeated Northside 7-2.

The Titans, under first-year head coach Lindy Stetson, are the defending Group AA state champions, while Northside, coached by Billy Pope, looks to be a leading contender this year in the Blue Ridge District.
