Tennis in full swing

The Morris Area tennis team has steadily grown in numbers, and with the experience of four seniors, the Tigers will continue to improve in 2010.

Seniors Jenny Hennen, Kelsey Schreifels, and Rory Anderson lead the team as captains. Brittany Harrison, who was sidelined with an injury last season, is the other returning senior.

The Tigers have already completed a fourth of their regular-season schedule, having participated in four of 16 events. With less than a week of practice, the Tigers took to the courts Friday, Aug. 20 for a home triangular.

This season, the Tigers host seven matches. The four remaining will be against Osakis on Sept. 7, Montevideo on Sept. 9, Lac qui Parle Valley on Sept. 13, and Minnewaska Area on Sept. 23. Those matches start at 4:30 p.m. at the Morris Area courts, south of the high school on Green River Road.

The team section meet will be held at St. John's on Oct. 13 and 14, with the individual tournament on the 14th, 15th, and 19th.
