Tough dual victory for Decorah

Monday, April 10, 2023 11:09 am

The Decorah boys tennis varsity team traveled to Winona Cotter Monday evening and picked up a tough 4-3 dual meet win playing Minnesota rules where teams play four singles matches and three doubles matches. The team also played a JV match against Osage, which is starting a boys program this year coming away with a 6-3 team victory at home Monday.
“In both meets there was some tough competition, early season nerves and plenty of hard fought matches,” said Coach Matt Anderson. “In junior varsity action many of the players got their first experience playing full matches that counted towards a team score. At Cotter, the experience of Caden Branum and Daniel Skrade, both returning state qualifiers, really showed as they secured two quality wins at No. 1 and No. 2 singles.”
