Red Wing stayed undefeated in the conference with a 5-2 victory against Academy of Holy Angels Wednesday in Richfield.
The Wingers (8-3, 4-0 Missota) lost matches at No. 1 and No. 2 singles but won the rest of the matches in straight sets.
“They’re one and two (singles) were really strong,” Red Wing head coach Randy Decker said. “I knew they were good but they were even better than I expected. We didn’t play poorly, they just played really well. The rest of the guys did really well. It was a good tune-up for this weekend.”
Sophomore Alex Holm defeated Jason Steenson 6-1, 6-0 at No. 3 singles and sophomore Noah Christenson won his match at No. 4 singles 6-0, 6-1.
Junior Luke Bryant and sophomore Nick Powers won 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 doubles, senior Steffen Bettich and Elliot Dietz tallied a 6-0, 6-4 victory at No. 2 doubles and sophomore Marcus Veith and eighth-grader Travis Toivonen defeated John Miotti and Marcus Gavino 7-6, 6-3 at No. 3 doubles.
