Top doubles tennis team advances to section's final four
The top Hastings doubles team of Craig Nielsen and Austin Houska made it all the way to the section's final four before having its season come to an end.
The two players advanced to the final day of play on Tuesday at the Rochester Athletic Club and ended up placing fourth.
Nielsen and Houska lost to a team from Rochester Mayo, 6-1, 6-7 (4), 6-0.
In the third-place match they lost 7-5, 7-5 to a team from Lakeville South.
"They played at a high level most of the day," coach Mick Willette said. "In the second match they had trouble closing out games. Winning a couple critical points in that match could have turned it in their favor."
