Alex tennis drops match to St. Cloud Tech

The Alexandria girls tennis team was unable to overcome a strong St. Cloud Tech team in a 6-1 loss at home on Tuesday.

The lone win for the Cardinals came from Bria Schueler at fourth singles. She won the first set 6-4 and took the second set in a tiebreaker.

"St. Cloud Tech is a very solid team from top to bottom," head coach Dave Ronning said. "Our first, second and third singles players were only able to muster seven games."

The Cardinals' third doubles team of Abby Telander and Hannah Vickstrom played the closest match, losing 6-3, 6-3.

"I believe our girls gave it their best effort on this night, and I also believe that they learned a lot from the Tech players," Ronning said. "Our girls will get back to the practice courts and incorporate what they learned from Tech."

The Cardinals were 1-1 in the conference after the loss to St. Cloud Tech, and 5-3 overall.
