Girls Tennis: Wingers rough up Holy Angels

The Red Wing girls tennis team had no trouble putting away Academy of Holy Angels on Tuesday with a 6-1 Missota Conference victory in Bloomington.

A new wrinkle in the Wingers’ lineup was an added emphasis in singles play as Red Wing’s solo players went a perfect 4-0. Solveig Christenson, Emily Otteson and Claire Carson each won their matches 6-1, 6-1, and Nicole Schammel had a shutout at No. 3, beating the Stars’ Eleanor Goblirsch 6-0, 6-0.

“I wouldn’t call it stacking the singles, but we had four good singles players in the lineup today,” said Red Wing head coach Matt Kavanagh. “We’re always competitive in the doubles, and it’s good for us to try and have three out of four wins in singles.”

In doubles, the Wingers continued to stay strong, taking two out of three. Red Wing’s No. 1 pairing of Emily Stegora and Katie Carlson beat Kate Banovetz and Corie Shea, 6-1, 6-0. McKenzie Muelken and Mati Bodensteiner also clinched a victory at No. 3 doubles with a 6-2, 6-2 win.

The Wingers (10-4, 3-1 Missota) return to the court Wednesday for a non-conference match with Hastings, then resume Missota play Thursday, hosting Northfield.
