The Minnewaska girls tennis team will play for a consolation championship at the Class A state tournament on Wednesday.

The Lakers lost 6-1 to Litchfield in their opening match on Tuesday. That dropped them to the consolation bracket, where they won a 4-3 match against Thief River Falls to set up a match-up with Blue Earth Area at noon on Wednesday.

Danielle Thorfinnson set the tone for Minnewaska in its win as she took the first singles match by a 6-1, 6-2 score. Alissa Thorfinnson followed suit and won at second singles, and Addy Randt made it three of four in the lineup when she won at fourth singles in a tight two-setter.

That meant the Lakers needed just one of the three doubles matches, and Maddie Thorfinnson and Olivia Richards got it. They overcame a loss in the first set at second doubles and won 6-7 (7), 6-1, 10-2. Richards and M. Thorfinnson also got the Lakers’ lone win against Litchfield when they won 6-2, 7-5 at third doubles.
