Area Girls’ Tennis: Lake City, Cannon Falls into section semis
Second-seeded Lake City beat seventh-seeded New Life Academy, 7-0, on Thursday to send the Tigers in the Section 1A semifinals on Monday.
Ava Wallerich, Ashley Thieren, Emma Brunkow and Sarah Ziebarth all won their singles matches in straight-sets. Katherine Kennedy and Renae Harvey didn't give up a game in their two-set win at No. 1 doubles. New Life Academy did not have a full complement of doubles teams and so forfeited at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles.
The Tigers move on to face third-seeded Stewartville at 10 a.m. Monday at the Rochester Athletic Club with the section championship to follow at 1 p.m. Top-seeded Rochester Lourdes face fifth-seeded Cannon Falls in the other semifinal.
The Bombers upset fourth-seeded Cotter, 4-3, in Winona on Thursday. No individual results were available at press time.
The Eagles have won 22-straight section championships and finished at the Class A state tournament last season and their top two players formed a team that won the Class A doubles tournament in 2017.
