The Red Wing boys tennis team breezed through its match against Farmington Tuesday with a 6-1 victory in Farmington.
Wingers head coach Randy Decker said the singles players continue to compete up to expectations and despite overmatching the Tigers, it was a good win.
“It was a good day,” he said. “We got off to a better start today. Our doubles really played better.”
Senior George Gabrielson defeated Blake Olmscheid 6-0, 6-2 at No. 1 singles for Red Wing (3-0) while sophomore Isaac Toivonen blanked Ben Cline 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 singles. Sophomore Noah Christenson impressed Decker with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Ivan Rodriguez at No. 3 singles.
“He played really well,” Decker said. “He constructed his points well. He also did some serving and volleying, which is new for him; he came to the net very effectively. I thought he played really, really well.”
Junior Luke Bryant and sophomore Alex Holm won their matchup against Jeff Zakoski and Tyler Olsen 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 doubles. At No. 2 doubles, sophomores Nick Powers and Marcus Veith grabbed a 6-0, 6-2 win and seniors Elliot Dietz and Steffen Bettich defeated Jon Zakoski and Austin Rau 6-2, 6-0 at No. 3 doubles.
Farmington’s only win came on a super tiebreaker at No. 4 singles after the Wingers had also clinched the match victory.
