Boys Tennis: Over and Out

Bennett Lagro went 1-1 at the Section 1AA individual tournament
Farmington's most successful season since 1999 came to an end Thursday afternoon at the opening round of the Section 1AA individual tournament played in Rochester.

The Tigers sent two singles players and two doubles teams to the post-season competition but none advanced to the next step in the ultra-tough section that features some of the best players in Minnesota.

Bennett Lagro provided the only Tiger win of the day with a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over the No.1 singles player from Faribault in the opening round before dropping a 2-6, 1-6 decision to Northfield's top player in the second.

"Bennett went to deuce nearly every game and had several opportunities to close out more games," Tiger caoch Jack Olwell said. "I thought he competed well."

Jake Bauer had some early leads in both sets in a 3-6, 3-6 lost to a Northfield opponent in the other Farmignton singles match.

In doubles, the top Tiger tandem of Austin Tremmel and Trent Kortenbusch fell 1-6, 0-6 and the No. 2 duo of Gavin Renwick and Cooper Ericksen lost 1-6, 1-6.
