Pine City Thrashes Becker 7-0!

Lady Dragons tennis Head Coach Kristin Unverzagt with the scoop from Tuesday's action!


The Dragon tennis team had a strong finish over Becker tonight with a 7-0 victory.

I am so proud of the girls for their efforts to dig in and battle back. It was a long bus ride and we had a slow start, but that did not determine the outcome of the match. Our girls stepped up and really dug in to get focused and finish strong. Our doubles movement and domination at the net was key to the success of their wins. Our first doubles team (Malia Mikyska/Brenna Youngbauer) and second doubles team (Lexa Valvoda/Alana Linnell) played well to walk away with a strong win. They both used their aggressive style to dominate the net and control the games. Our third doubles (Vivian Lahti & Kate Unverzagt) battled back from a 0-4 deficit in the third set to win five games in a row and come back to win 7-1 tie breaker for the third set . Our singles points were also hard battles and the scores do not show how tight they were with many deuce games. Brooke Boland's first game of the first set battled back and forth to deuce for over 20 minutes. She then used first game to show grit and finish strong. Allison Unverzagt was at 2nd singles and was amazing with her inside out forehand and moved her opponent on the court. Third singles was a very tight battle that went back and forth as they split each switchover until Lena broke serve to move ahead two games. Lily Struss played well at 4th singles,moving her opponent and attacking on the right ball. All positions played strong and it was a team effort to earn the 7-0 victory. It was a very big win for the team.

I am so proud of this team as they continue to improve each time we step on the court. They are an amazing group of young women!

We host North Branch on Thursday at 4:30
