Boys Tennis: Lake City tripped up by Stewartville
Lake City improved a bit from its first encounter with Stewartville nearly a month ago. But the steps were small and not enough as the southern Tigers topped the area squad, 5-2, in a Hiawatha Valley League match.
Cort McElmury, at No. 4 singles, got Lake City’s only win in solo competition, winning 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 over Shane Parks.
Lake City’s other victory came at No. 1 doubles where the team of Logan Adler and Peyton Fick won 7-5, 6-1 over Paul Betcher and Grady Koster. The No. 3 doubles tandem of Brandon Ormsby and Mitch Medvec won their first set, but fell in three.
Lake City will visit Shattuck-St. Mary’s on Thursday, then host perennial power Rochester Lourdes in the regular-season finale on Friday.
