The fall season is off and running in Osakis as the girls tennis team went to Pequot Lakes for an opening triangular and came back with a 1-1 record.
The Silverstreaks fell in a 6-1 final to Pequot Lakes but bounced back with a 4-3 win over Thief River Falls.
“The girls played well for the first day of matches,” Osakis head coach Ryan Maddock said. “We struggled some with Pequot Lakes but played better in our match with Thief River Falls. It was very strong competition for us as both these schools will be near or at the top of their sections this year.”
The Silverstreaks got two wins each in the doubles and singles lineup against Thief River Falls. Osakis’ anchor at first singles, junior Tia Dykema, got a straight-set win in a 6-1, 6-4 final. Larissa Hoffarth added a win at fourth singles in a tight 2-6, 6-1, 10-3 final.
Camryn Hoffarth and Mara VanNyhuis also won a three-setter at first doubles. They overcame a loss in the second set to win 6-3, 2-6, 10-4, and Brittany Dietrich and Makenzie Lien got Osakis’ final team point with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) win at third doubles.
Pequot Lakes defended its home courts in impressive fashion with straight-set wins in six spots. Kennedy George had Osakis’ lone win of that match in a 6-4, 6-3 final at third singles.
The Silverstreaks will be right back in action on Monday when they head to Pine City for a 9 a.m. tournament.
