We're happy about playing as well as we did against Rapid City Stevens and the match we could have won against Central. We got a couple of wins on the second day.
Jamie Link played at number one for us today and got a real good win and all the doubles teams played well.
Stevens is very good. They have every body back from last year and they were good last year. The Central match was nip and tuck. We lost three out of four super tie-breakers.
I was happy with the results. We haven't practiced that much this week because of rain.
That was a match we thought was going to be real tight and we were in it the whole time. It came down the number one and number three doubles.
We played better (on Saturday) and I think part of that was getting the first two matches out of our system. We were nervous. We're getting better but have a lot of things to work on including inconsistency in our ground strokes. We served a lot better today.
We had three really close matches. We started slowly at numbers one and three doubles, and lost the first set in each. We came back and played well in the final two sets.
We gave some of the junior varsity players an opportunity to play varsity today. We did real well. The whole idea was to give them some experience.
We were pretty good at the tie-breakers today. We lost one at number two singles but all the others went our way. We were fortunate there.
We had some bright spots out there with our younger guys. Dane (freshman), Derek (sophomore) and Mike (freshman) picked up some good wins. This was as close a match as you can get. It was a perfect day for tennis.
Derek White played a very good match and our number two doubles played well today.
It was like two different matches. We played so well in singles and when it came to doubles, we did not play well at all.
For our first time out, I thought we played some good tennis. We played hard and came up short on those tie-breakers against Rapid City Central.
The match came down to number one doubles. We were up 9-6 in the tie-breaker and had three match points but they won five straight points to close out the match.
