Should the Lake City girls tennis team pull off the upset Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the Section 1A tournament, its reward will likely be a date with Rochester Lourdes, who just throttled the Tigers, 7-0, Tuesday afternoon.


“We played very well,” said Lake City head coach Dave Toole. “But Lourdes is really good.”

Two bright spots for the Tigers were at No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles. Emily Albright won her first set at No. 2 singles before falling 2-6, 6-2, 10-8. Katie Coyle and Carley Cronin also won their first set at No. 2 doubles, but lost 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

The fifth-seeded Tigers (6-12) will head to Stewartville Wednesday to face the fourth-seeded Tigers.

“We’re battling an injury bug with a few kids as well,” Toole said. “But I think we have a good chance at at least six spots.”

The two teams split the season series, each winning 4-3 against the other. The winner will face either Lourdes, the top seed, or Winona Cotter or St. Croix Lutheran.
