Tennis: Osakis comes away unbeaten at Alexandria Tri
The Osakis tennis team wants to test itself against good opponents whenever it can throughout the regular season, and the Silverstreaks did that in a triangular in Alexandria on Saturday.
Osakis went 2-0 on the day, beating a Class AA team in Alexandria by a 6-1 final and taking care of Crookston out of Section 8A by a 5-2 score.
“We had a good day today,” Osakis head coach Ryan Maddock said. “All the girls played well. It was good competition, and it was great to play at such a nice facility.”
Osakis swept the singles lineup against Alexandria. Tia Dykema won 6-2, 6-3 against sophomore Brianna Holm. Shea Olson and Lauren Scherr also won in straight sets at second and third singles, while Kennedy George outlasted Sarah Jiang in a tight 7-5, 6-4 match at fourth singles.
The Cardinals’ lone win came at first doubles as Madison Ressemann and Abby Sater won 6-4, 6-1 over Camryn Hoffarth and Alexa Lien. Mara VanNyhuis and Larissa Hoffarth took care of business for Osakis at second doubles in a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 match. Kadyn Triebenbach and Sydney Rach also won a three-setter at third doubles.
The singles lineup took control for Osakis against Crookston, as well. The Silverstreaks won all four of those matches, three coming in straight-set victories from Dykema, Scherr and Camryn Hoffarth. VanNyhuis also won after falling 5-7 in the first set and winning 6-1, 6-1 the rest of the way.
Osakis’ lone win in doubles came at the third spot when Triebenbach and Rach won 6-4, 6-2.
The two wins moved Osakis to 9-1 on the season. The Silverstreaks are at Long Prairie-Grey Eagle on Thursday at 4 as they try to add another win to their season.Cardinals take down Crookston
