After having four straight matches postponed due to weather, Red Wing burst back onto the scene Thursday with a 7-0 home victory against Holy Angels.
"I don't want to read too much into this match because our job was made much easier by the fact that they were missing their No. 1 singles player," Red Wing coach Randy Decker said in an email.
Decker went on to praise the performance of Elliot Dietz, one half of Red Wing's No. 3 doubles team.
"He hit some of the best shots I've seen him make," Decker said.
Dietz was teamed with Steffen Bettich.
"Steffen is the kind of guy who makes everyone I put with him play better," Decker said. "He is confident, positive and aggressive -- the qualities I look for in doubles players.
Dietz and Bettich won 6-1, 6-2 over Jack Healy and Caleb Benz.
Red Wing (4-0 overall, 1-0 Missota Conference) will play in the Eagan tournament on Saturday.
