High school tennis courts throughout the Midcoast, and in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B ranks, were littered with activity on Friday, May 23 as teams were in action with the end of the regular season in sight.

Among Friday's winners were the Camden Hills boys and girls and the Oceanside boys, while the Oceanside girls and the Medomak Valley boys and girls were dealt losses.

The Mariner and Windjammer boys and girls appear playoff-bound, while the Panther squads probably will be on the outside looking in once the final Heal Points are tabulated.

The following is a recap of reported results:
