Girls Tennis: Orthaus goes winless at state


MINNEAPOLIS - In her time as a Lake City tennis player, the coaches wanted to change several things about Amy Orthaus' tennis game.

"The lob game, the swinging volleys, my serve, I kind of scrunch my body," Orthaus said. "I know that has driven them crazy."

Said Tigers head coach Dave Toole, "We've tried to change her game a number of times, but that's her game."
