Pine City Earns Trip to State

The Pine City Dragon girls tennis team is headed to the state tournament after defeating Eveleth-Gilbert on Friday morning in Virginia.


Here is a recap from head coach Kristin Unverzagt:


It is with much excitement that I write and share the results of yesterday's match! The team defeated Eveleth-Gilbert with a team score of 6-1! I could not be more proud of their efforts. The girls continued to work hard and improve after every match and practice and it was evident as they dominated the match. The girls kept their season goals in mind and practiced with purpose and intensity. They truly have each other to thank as our team always pushed each other to improve and get better. They always work hard and never give up!


Lena Roubinek had a strong start in the match and set the tone winning the very first set for the Dragons. As the other players saw this, they got more fired up and the victory was determined after our first four points finished. All of our players played smart, did not give up on any short, and got to every ball! Because Virginia Indoor only has four courts, we played 2nd and 3rd doubles and 3rd and th singles in the first round. Because of this, our 1st and 2nd singles and 1st doubles knew we were heading to the state tournament before their matches began. I am so proud of how they continued to give it their all they had knowing they were already heading to the state tournament. The girls have amazed me everyday this season with their determination, hard work, and willingness to challenge their game. All players wanted to get better and were never okay with maintaining. They continued to be their best and it showed in the section final match!


We will have six individuals competing on Monday and Tuesday at Virginia Indoor to go to the state tournament as an individual. In singles, it will be Ella Sell and Brooke Boland. Our doubles teams will be Addison Sell/Allison Unverzagt and Claire Emmons/Malia Mikyska.


The state tournament begins on Tuesday, October 26th where we will face Litchfield in our first match. On Thursday, October 28th with individual play for those that advance after next week's tournament in Virginia.
