The Spartan tennis team climbed back to the .500 level overall and in MRVC East play Tuesday afternoon with a 6-3 win over Knob Noster at Maurice Roberts Park. Richmond improved to 2-2 in league matches and 4-4 overall. It was the Spartans second win in as many meetings over the defending league champs this season and coach Julie Baker said the 6-3 final was deceiving.

Richmond took four of the singles matches.
