C-I Tennis falls to Huskies
Cambridge-Isanti Boys Tennis’ team season came to a close with a 4-3 loss to No. 4 seed Andover in the May 21 Section 7AA South Subsection Team tourney. The Bluejackets will now send entrants into the 7AA South Singles & Doubles tourney at St. Francis on May 24.
“This was probably our best team match performance this season. After losing to Andover 5-2 one week ago, we came ready to compete and lost a close 4-3 match tonight,” noted C-I Coach Thea Lowman. “We swept all three Doubles matches, but couldn’t get the Singles point from Andover’s talented singles line-up. Marshall White came close at No. 1 Singles, charging forward in the second set before falling 6-3, 6-4. Overall, I’m proud of how the guys performed and almost upset a solid team.”
Bluejacket Doubles victories were posted by Matt Olson & Calvin Cicha at No. 1 (6-1, 6-1), Sam Renier & Destiny Modina at No. 2 (6-1, 7-5), and Devin Gislason & Josh Fredlund at No. 3 (6-1, 6-2). Andover dropped just three games between the No. 2 and No. 4 Singles matches.
On May 22, top-seed Elk River swept Andover 7-0, and No. 2 seed Forest Lake played Chisago Lakes.
• The Bluejackets (7-7 overall) closed the regular season with a 7-0 win over North Branch May 17. White, Renier, Gislason and Modina swept their Singles matches. Winning at Doubles were Olson & Cicha, Christian Utecht & Fredlund, and Derek Belford & Thomas Phillips.
