The outcome of the match was less important than the fact that it happened.
When Vacaville and Vanden High schools met for a girls tennis contest Tuesday afternoon at Vanden, it was the first competition for any sport in the Monticello Empire League in almost a year.
Vanden prevailed in the contest, 5-4. However, players, athletic directors, coaches and parents were just happy to be out competing and watching.
No spectators were allowed due to the coronavirus, so parents viewed the contest from their cars in the parking lot.
