WILLMAR - The Willmar girls tennis team improved to 10-1 overall with a 7-0 non-conference win over Marshall on Monday.
The Cardinals’ singles players dropped just one set and all seven Willmar teams won in straight sets.
“The Willmar girls are a bunch of high performers on and off the tennis court,” said Cardinals head coach Jim Anderson. “Today, they put their intelligence into play with extremely winy conditions and dominated all seven matches.”
Given the weather, the Cardinals concentrated on getting serves in, returning cross court and keeping points alive, Anderson said.
“The singles side has been hauling the mail up to this part of the season,” Anderson said. “Now the doubles side is coming alive and contributing to the team.”
The Cards, who are 5-1 in the Central Lakes Conference, play a CLC match at Sartell today.
