The Princeton boys tennis team is enjoying a four-game winning streak after wins last week at Mora and St. Cloud Cathedral. That comes after dropping the first three meets of the season at Pine City, Aitkin and Foley.

The boys had matches against Big Lake, Chaska and St. Francis rained out on Saturday. The Tigers were tied 3-3 with St. Francis when the meet was called. The two teams are expected to finish the match at a later date, coach Jon Steinbrecher said.
