Today we traveled to St. Cloud Tech to play St. Cloud, Pequot Lakes, and Staples. The rain did not allow us to get in our last match, but we had good matches with St. Cloud and Pequot Lakes.
Here are some highlights:
In the St. Cloud match, our team came ready to play as we swept doubles. The teams moved well and maintained their offensive position. In singles, our game improved from Friday as the players utilized passing shots and took advantage of offensive opportunities. All the girls were focused and played hard for this match.
In the Pequot Lakes match, it came down to a few points. We battled hard and all positions and fell short by one point. At first doubles, Lahti and Unverzagt were the first point off with a dominating match, winning 6-1, 6-0. 2nd doubles, Mikyska and Emmons, battled hard to win a first set tie breaker and then played strong and smart to win the second set. The 3rd doubles team, Youngbauer and Roubinek, battled hard to rally back in the second and take it to a third set tie breaker. In singles, Ella Sell had a strong game against a tough first singles, but fell just short. Berglund also stepped up at second singles with great shots, smart rallies, and aggressive play. Winning our only singles point was Addison Sell. She played consistent, smart, and aggressive. Her points were long but she stayed patient until she had an opportunity to be offensive. Wrapping up the singles line up was Brooke Boland and 4th singles. She also had a good match against a strong Pequot player.
Overall, I continue to be so proud of their team and their efforts. We get better and continue to learn each time we step on the court.
Unfortunately, their matchups today have been cancelled due to the rain.
