Tennis team wins two more
The Hastings boys tennis team improved its record to 3-1 overall with a pair of wins. Hastings beat Farmington on Monday, 7-0, and beat Forest Lake last week, 4-3.
In the win over Farmington, Hastings High School coach Mick Willette actually left his top two singles players home, and his top two doubles teams stayed in Hastings as well.
Still, the Raiders cruised to the win.
"It worked out pretty well," Willette said. "We got to see some of the younger guys from the junior varsity. "
Ben Carlson played first singles and won 6-2, 6-0. Matt Lund moved up to second singles and won, 6-3, 4-6 and 10-8 in the tiebreaker.
Tom Moynihan won at third singles, 6-4, 6-2 and Charlie Lamb won at fourth singles, 6-2, 6-1.
In doubles, Brett Peterson and Chase Kasel played No. 1 and won, 6-0, 6-1.
Lars Schauerhammer and Charlie Carpenter were No. 2 and won, 6-2, 6-3.
Matt Friederichs and Mitch Murphy teamed up at No. 3 and won, 6-2, 6-0.
Vs Forest Lake
The 4-3 win over Forest Lake wasn't as dramatic as the score would indicate. Hastings won the first four matches and had the win in hand.
Wins at the singles positions were recorded by Non Wiwatwongthorn at the second spot (6-1, 6-1) and by Ben Carlson at the third spot (6-2, 6-0).
In doubles, Josh Houska and Brett Peterson won 6-4, 6-1, and the team of Adam Ernst and Elliot Siebenaler won 6-2, 6-2.
