Tennis: Tigers go 0-4 in sub-section tournament
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

The Farmington girls tennis team went quietly against some tough competition in the Section 1AA sub-section tournament last week at the Rochester Athletic Club.


All four of the Tigers’ entrants were knocked out by higher seeds in straight sets.

“We have found it difficult to advance in sub-section play and this year was no exception despite some very good individual performances,” coach Jack Olwell said.

In singles play, Ryan Jara lost 2-6, 0-6 and Jessie Novotny fell 1-6, 2-6.

The doubles team of Beth and Lindsey Fairchild kept its match close, falling 6-7, 5-7. Callie Olmscheid and Kayla Rees lost 1-6, 0-6 in the other doubles match.
