Tigers dominate league tennis tourney

Delano dominated the Wright County Conference meet last Friday, claiming four of the seven titles, placing second in the other three.

Laura Finn captured the crown at No. 1 singles for the second time. The senior also won as a sophomore and took second last year.

“She played some great tennis and has been a key player on this team for many years,” said coach Kim Finn about her daughter who won her fifth All-Conference honor.

Slowed by an injured ankle suffered earlier in the week, Kristin Hedtke took second at No. 2 singles.

Also placing second was Laura Parsons at third singles and eighth-grader Katie Schleif at No. 4 singles.

Delano won all three titles at doubles. Allison Sandlass and Cassy Finn won at first doubles where Finn claimed her third title and fourth All-Conference honors. Sandlass won her second title.

Allison Warne and Katie Vatnsdal won at second doubles in a tie-breaker. Alex Schreyer and Tayler Hedtke had no problems winning third doubles.

The section team tourney started Tuesday, with semifinals set for Thursday, Oct. 4 and finals Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Gustavus in St. Peter.

The individual tourney starts Oct. 12.
