Boys Tennis : Season ends in Rochester

Jake Bauer lost a marathon 6-7, 7-6, 2-6 decision
The Tigers' 2013 season officially met the end of the road Thursday in Rochester as all four Farmington entries fell in the opening round of the Section 1AA individual tournament.

"We did not do as well as we had hoped," Farmington coach Jack Olwell said.

The best showing of the day for the Tigers came from seventh-grader Jake Bauer who lost a three-hour marathon 6-7, 7-6, 2-6 decision to an opponent from  Owatonna.

"It was more or less a battle of attrition with a lot of unforced errors," Olwell said, "but it was there for the taking."

Freshman Bennett Lagro also had some opportunities in a 4-6, 2-6 loss to the No.1 doubles player from Rochester Mayo.

Austin Tremmel and Trent Kortenbusch lost 1-6 0-6 to Owatonna's top doubles team and Austin Rau and Grady Hauswirth fell 0-6, 0-6 to a tandem from Red Wing.
