Jefferson won in straight sets over Crystal City on Tuesday to tighten their grip on the lead in the JCAA Small-School Division.
At 7-4, Blue Jays head coach Tara Fish says her team is in a good place, but they like having a test like Festus at this point in the season.
Festus fell to Hillsboro on Tuesday to drop to 2-7, but they had won their first 2 matches of the season prior to that.
The Blue Jays had won back-to-back matches against the Tigers prior to last year’s Festus win in 2 sets.
Coverage of the Jefferson County Game of the Week starts with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show at 5:45 Thursday evening on AM 1400 KJFF.
