MOULTRIE -- The Colquitt County tennis teams made quick work of Thomas County Central on Monday at the Jim Buck Goff Recreation Complex, but the level of competition will be considerably tougher today and Thursday.

The Lady Packers and Packers, each 4-0 after 5-0 victories over Central, will play host to former region opponent Bainbridge beginning at 4 p.m. at the Jim Buck Goff Complex.
