Girls Tennis: Cannon Falls bounces Trinity

After a tough day at the Rochester John Marshall tournament Saturday, the Cannon Falls girls tennis team came back Tuesday with an impressive 5-2 non-conference rout of Trinity School at River Ridge.

The only losses for the Bombers were at No. 1 singles, and No. 1 doubles where Cannon Falls ran into some talented girls. But the Trinity roster was not nearly as deep as Cannon Falls as the Bombers rolled through the remaining five matches, dropping just three games in the process.

“There were a couple sisters, the coach’s daughters,” said Cannon Falls coach Paul Norstad of Jenny and Katie Mulvey, daughters of Trinity coach Catherine Mulvey. “But we really had no trouble the rest of the way.”

Jenny Mulvey beat Tayler Banitt 6-2, 6-1, and Katie Mulvey teamed with Jalia Anderson to beat Kaesey Glaess and Hannah Boman 6-0, 6-2.

But, as Norstad mentioned, trouble was certainly not an issue the remainder of the match. Sheyenne Bauer and McKenna Bauer rolled 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 and No. 3 singles, respectively. Maddie Adel dropped just one game at No. 2 singles, winning 6-1, 6-0.

At No. 2 doubles, Grace Rutter and Sarah Modrak defeated Nicole Howard and Angie Hagen 6-0, 6-1 while Molly Rolfes and Bethany Nelson beat Aviv Stella and Amy Becker by the same score.

The Bombers (8-5) will next face Rochester Lourdes Thursday, at home, in a Hiawatha Valley League contest.
