Boys Tennis: Tigers go quietly in section

Jake Bauer lost in three sets at second singles
Farmington finished the 2014 spring season with its second best dual meet record ever, but the season ended abruptly in the opening round of the Section 1AA tournament with a 7-0 shutout loss at Owatonna.

Tiger coach Jack Olwell said the Huskies were the favorites going in but he thought his team would put up a better battle.

"Unfortunately, we picked a bad time to leave our A game in the bag and our B game was not enough," he said.

Jake Bauer was the only Tiger to stretch the opposition to three sets, losing a 2-6, 7-6 (4), 3-10 verdict at second singles

"Jake looked good for awhile and then would loose momentum," Olwell said. "He came from behind to level the match but dug a deep hole in the super tie-breaker."

Section 1AA individual competition begins next week. Each team will send two singles players and two doubles teams with the winners advancing to state tournament.
