The boy’s team was led by Hayden Bekkedahl, who earned a win in singles (6-1, 6-0) and doubles (8-2) with his partner Trent Dreisbach.

The head coach for the girls’ team, Greg Brueckner was also pleased with the effort he saw today but did point out an area he would like to see his team grow in.

“I saw a few areas where we can be mentally stronger,” said Brueckner. “But, I thought they played well today.”

The girls’ team was led by Tatum Liska, a senior and four-year letter winner. She did not drop a set on the afternoon winning 6-0 in singles and 8-0 in doubles. Her doubles partner was Athena Ganas.
