Last Saturday the Hornets travelled north to Brainerd High School to participate in the annual Moose Tournament where they were led by a pair of strong individual performances.
Eleonora Piva went 3-1 on her way to finishing second in the #1 singles flight. She won her first three matches before suffering her first loss of the season to the eventual champion, Anna Sievert of Glencoe-Silver Lake.
In the #3 doubles flight, Lilly Trulock and Tatum White also went 3-1 with a second-place finish. They too started 3-0 before losing in their final match to the eventual flight champions.
Other Hornets winning matches on the day were Sienna McConville, Audrey Guldseth, Amelia Gardner & Grace Knodle, and Emily Shoop & Lexi Kapsner. McConville went 2-2 in the #3 singles flight and the others all won one match out of the #4 singles, #1 doubles, and #2 doubles respectively.
The Big Lake tennis team also travelled to Princeton last Thursday where they fell to the Tigers by a score of 6-1.
The lone victory for the Hornets came from Eleonora Piva in the #1 singles slot. Piva continued her dominant week by posting her second victory in as many tries. After dropping the opening set 3-6, she roared back to win the match by taking the final two sets 6-0 and 6-0.
The Hornets will have a busy week with three competitions in the next five days. First, they will travel to St. Francis this Thursday. After that they will host Roseau, North Branch, and Willmar in a Quad this Saturday before hosting Monticello next Tuesday.
