Girls Tennis: Alexandria topples Willmar 6-1

WILLMAR — Cardinals 1-singles player Cayle Hovland rebounded from a first-set loss to claim the lone point in Willmar’s 6-1 loss to a veteran Alexandria squad Friday in a Central Lakes match.

Hovland won the second set 7-5 and the third 6-4 over Alexandria’s Ellie Bergstrand.

“Hovland took on the role of a spoiler and knocked off a very seasoned, top singles player,” said Cardinals head coach Jim Anderson, noting that the match took more than three hours. “Cayle chose to never give up.”
