The Knights tennis team finished a 9-0 conference season with wins over Monticello and St. Francis.

The match against Monticello was an intense back-and-forth affair which came down to the last match. Jimmy Li (6-0, 6-0), Owen Lindstrom (6-2, 6-3) and Caden Sigerud (7-6, 7-6) won in singles for the Knights; Sigerud’s match decided the outcome.

Ethan Cornell and Joey Kragness (6-3, 6-2) got a point in doubles as the Knights won 4-3 over the Magic.

STMA swiftly took care of business against St. Francis in a 7-0 sweep. The win meant STMA finished the season undefeated in the conference, which meant a conference title.

Next up for the Knights: the section playoffs.
