Coach Matt Neilson’s thoughts after the matches. “On Friday against maybe the 3rd best team in the state in Sheyenne, we held our own. We lost 6-3 but we had our chances at 4 singles, 5 singles, and 3 doubles. They were better than us on this day, but this showed us that we are capable.

With the loss, we dropped out of contention for a #2 seed for the EDC tournament. It then came down to Saturday’s EDC finale; a win and we are the #4 seed and a loss to North would drop us all the way to #6.”

The girls tennis team will return to game action on Thursday when they will travel to Grand Forks for the region tournament.
