The Cardinal girls’ tennis team picked up another win in the Central Lakes Conference last Thursday with their second 7-0 win over Little Falls this season.
The Flyers stacked their doubles lineup as a result of that previous 7-0 win. The hope was that this move would secure a few victories in the doubles lineup and they could steal one or two matches from the Cardinals in singles play.
That was not about to happen as Alexandria dominated throughout, especially in the singles lineup where they dropped just two games.
Rachel Ziegler, Ashley White and Jenna Galstad all won their matches 6-0, 6-0. Annie Trebelhorn was not far behind in terms of dominance with a 6-0, 6-2 win at No. 1 singles.
The tightest match of the day came at No. 2 doubles where Holea Bruggman and Laura Johnson beat Sam Loester and Bailey LaCoursiene 7-6 (3), 7-5.
It was a dominant win for the Cardinals that moved them to 12-2 overall and 4-1 in the CLC.
“We still have areas in which we can improve on, and I believe the girls want to get better each and every day,” head coach Dave Ronning said. “They are giving a solid effort day in and day out, and that is just what we want so they can go home feeling good every day.”
