Minnewaska takes down good Perham team in impressive fashion
Minnewaska is back to midseason form after beating defending section runner-up Perham on Thursday afternoon.
The Perham boys tennis team is the defending section runner-up, but the Yellowjackets had their hands full with Minnewaska.
The Lakers took home a 5-2 win on Thursday afternoon on the backs of three singles performances. Tate Reichmann beat Josh Peterson 6-3, 6-4 in the No. 1 matchup, while Gannon Walsh and Ethan Qualle won convincingly in the Nos. 3 and 4 matchups.
“This was a big win for Minnewaska,” Lakers’ head coach Tara Reichmann said. “ Perham was the section runner-up team last year. Perham has a very good first singles player too, so it was quite a battle. Tate had good composure.”
The Lakers also won two doubles matches. In the No. 2 meeting, Aiden Maanum and Conner Quelle beat Michael Anderson and Hudson Jackel 6-2, 6-0. Tenzin Dahl and Noah Palmer beat Reese Willprecht and Avery Halverson 6-1, 6-1 in the No. 3 match.
