The Alexandria boys tennis team had a very busy finish to the regular season as it played six matches in three days.

On senior night, Alexandria defeated Sauk Rapids-Rice (7-0), Minnewaska (6-1) and Sauk Rapids-Rice (7-0).

β€œA big thank you goes out to the seniors for their hard work and leadership; Ryker Bosek, Erik Reineke, Hunter Bollman, David Rauscher, Landon Seward, and Lucas Taylor,” Alexandria head coach Nick Jansen said.

Alexandria followed these wins with a 7-0 win over Detroit Lakes on Friday and a 4-3 win over Bemidji that came down to the final match.

β€œThe match came, down to fourth singles where Brett Thornburg battled back after dropping the first set, to win the second set and the third set in a tie-breaker,” Jansen said.
