The spring sports’ season is coming to an end with Section Tournaments starting this week. The boys’ tennis team is on a roll and is hoping to continue their run of good form into the tournament. The team is on a six match win-streak and just won the Metro West Conference after going 7-0 and beating future first round Section matchup Bloomington Jefferson.

The team started off with many extremely tough matchups this season, which initially hurt their record. “We started off with a very difficult schedule with 4 top 10 teams (in State) in our first couple of matches which is a challenging thing for anyone to handle, but we have started playing well and we have gained some confidence,” senior captain Max Jablonski said.

Going into Sections on a win-streak is important after having a tough start to the season. “Heading into sections on a roll I think is really important for some of our freshman and really anyone who hasn’t played in Sections before, and it is a really big confidence booster to the whole team,” junior Ryan Frost said.

6AA is one of the hardest sections in the state with having multiple strong schools. “It’s going to be tough with schools like Edina, Eastview, and Washburn, but I think we can come out on top if we play our best,” junior Tristan Fjelstad said.

In High School tennis the scoring is a little different than other sports. The matchup between two schools consists of 7 matches with each match being worth 1 point, so whatever team wins 4 or more matches wins the entire match. With these rules every match is vital for the team. “Every matchup is key for Sections and in practice we are really working hard on our younger players who are playing lower seeded singles and doubles matches. Our top (of the lineup) has been looking pretty good and if the bottom of our team performs like I know they can, the team will succeed,” Frost said.

Riding this win streak the boys’ team is hoping to surpass the super power Section and go to State.
