Tiger Tennis picks up wins over Vikings, Mustangs

Tiger girls tennis began the season with a 2-3 mark, getting their first victories at the Aug. 27 North Branch Triangular.

Princeton began action Aug. 20 at the St. Francis Invite where they ran into highly-ranked Andover, along with Chisago Lakes and the Saints.

The Tigers rebounded on Monday with victories against Mora and the Vikings.

“Monday allowed us to get some younger kids some matches, commented Tiger Coach Kelly Dorr. “We had some girls earn their first varsity wins (Sarah Stark, Meg Farley and Hannah Johnson). We have eight girls in the mix for second and third doubles. Today allowed us to take some looks at other players.”

Coach Dorr added, “We are growing and learning every match in doubles. We may take some losses early on, but our goal is to hit thousands of tennis balls and to improve our strategies.”
