Otters Spllit Tennis Matches in Park Rapids

By Titus Christianson - Park Rapids, MN

The Fergus Falls boys tennis team closed out their regular season in the Park Rapids triangular Friday afternoon. The Otters posted a 6-1 win over the Panthers , but lost to Bemidji, 6-1. 

“We had a very slow start against Park Rapids and it wasn't looking good,” recalled Head Coach Titus Christianson of the Otters. “We dropped 4 of 7 first sets. Yeah it wasn't looking pretty to get a team win but the guys stayed positive, dug in a bit and 3 of the spots we won the 2nd convincingly. We finished with a win on all super tiebreaker 3rd sets. Caleb Danielson and Joe Connelly played very steady tennis at 3 and 4 singles. Isaac Ahlgren and Noah Tarczon started slow but found their groove to pull out their matches. Leo Segura and Justin Mortenson figured things out after a slow start and won convincingly in the second set. That was great to see a couple of seniors get a win in one of their last matches.”

Christianson continued, “The Bemidji match was a bit of a different a story. Bemidji has a pretty solid team but I thought our guys played fairly well. Caleb had some great points with his opponent. Matt Monke and Tyler Hobbs once again had a marathon. They were able to block back a lot of strong serves and shots from their opponents. They made the opponent hit a lot of extra balls and we were able to capitalize. They pulled out a well played match in the super breaker. It was good to see them come out on the winning end of a third set.”

The Otters will play Crookston in the section 8A quarters on Monday at KSS at 1130am.
