Members of the Beachview “Blue” tennis team with the banner signifying their championship for the 2018-2019 season. They won the “B” flight by playing seven teams from Lee County, once at home and once away, for a total of 14 matches over a four-month season. Each match consisted of four doubles pairs playing the best out of three sets. The championship of the flight was not determined until a strong finish by the Beachview team on the final day of play, which resulted in a one-point victory.
