WILLMAR -- Former New London-Spicer tennis player Angie Wiegmann has been close, but not close enough to a singles title in area tournaments this summer.

Wiegmann finally broke through by beating Delaney Edwards 7-5, 6-4 Saturday for the Women's Open title at the Rice Tennis Classic.

Wiegmann finished second in the women's open at New London Water Days last weekend and lost in the semifinals of the Cardinal Classic June 13.

Scott Larsen, the head tennis coach at St. Benedict's, won the Men's Open title, defeating perennial contender and Madison native Brent Gloege 4-6, 7-5, 10-4 Saturday.

Doubles action took over the tennis courts at Willmar Senior High School on Sunday. Both men's and women's championship matches featured former area athletes. Paula (Beckermann) Smith, a New London-Spicer tennis star, teamed up with Wildcat alum Beth Helgeson to win the Women's Doubles title over Kaily Rice, formerly of Willmar, and Brynne Zinnecker of Winona. Rice and Zinnecker commanded the court early, taking a 6-1 lead, but Smith and Helgeson stormed back to win the second set 6-4, then the pro-set tiebreaker, 10-2.

In Men's Open Doubles, a pair of former Willmar players were beaten back by rival Cardinals from Alexandria. Tom and Reggie Ronning beat Kyle and Tony Rice in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

Other winners were Marv Wensman of Alexandria in Men's 'A' Singles, Zach and Jack Burton of Willmar in Men's 'A' Doubles, Lac qui Parle Valley boys and Montevideo girls tennis coach Barry Brace of Montevideo in Men's Masters Singles, Matt Jacobson of Fergus Falls in Boys Singles, Alissa Holmgren of Litchfield in Girls Singles, and New London-Spicer boys and girls tennis coach Chad Schmiesing and Erica Tollefson of Minneapolis in Mixed Doubles.
