Delano tennis fends off top threat

Before the tennis season started, Delano girls tennis coach Kim Finn warned her players how the match against league rival Orono could go either way.

When the dust cleared, Delano made sure the match went its way, defeating Orono 5-2. The Tigers also shut out Annandale 7-0 to remain undefeated on the season.

Winning at singles against Orono was Kristin Hedtke at No. 2 and Katie Schleif at No. 4.

All three Tiger doubles teams posted victories, including Cassy Finn and Allison Sandlass, Katie Vatnsdal and Allison Warne, plus Tayler Hedtke and Alex Schreyer

“Kristin had lost to her Orono opponent early in the season and she was ready to play her this time,” said Finn about Hedtke. “This is the first shutout for Cassy and Allison. The experience they have built in the last two seasons is really starting to show.

Winning at singles against Annandale was Laura Finn, Hedtke, Laura Parsons and Schleif. The doubles teams were the same as against Orono.
