Bluejacket Tennis sweeps Mustangs

The Cambridge-Isanti boys tennis squad evened its 2012 record at 2-2 by sweeping its April 20 matches at Mora. Winning at Singles were Marshall White (6-3, 6-0), Sam Renier (6-0, 6-1), Devin Gislason (6-0, 6-1), and Thomas Phillips (6-2, 7-6). Taking their Doubles matches against the Mustangs were Calvin Cicha & Matt Olson (6-4, 6-1), Christian Utecht & Josh Fredlund (6-1, 6-), and Derick DeMars & Derek Belford (6-4, 6-1).

• On April 24 the Jackets upped their M-8 mark to 2-1 with a 5-2 win over Monticello. Sweeping at Singles were White (6-1, 6-1), Renier (6-3, 2-6, 6-2), Henderson (2-6, 6-4, 6-0) and Gislason (6-4, 6-0). Fredlund & Utecht teamed for a win at No. 2 Doubles (6-2, 6-2).

Coach Thea Lowman: “We continue to show improved confidence on the court, which helped us pull out two three-set matches against Monticello.  Nate Henderson showed the variety in his tennis game by changing strategy in the second set to counter his opponent’s topspin, and Sam Renier showed great focus in pulling out the third set after dropping the second.”

• The C-I boys host their annual Bluejacket Invite this Saturday. Coming to town for the tourney are Benson, Cloquet and Mound-Westonka.
