Boys Tennis: DL starts season with 2 losses in TRF

The Detroit Lakes boys’ tennis team was a bit shorthanded in their season opener in the Thief River Falls triangular, as they lost to the Prowlers 6-1 and Crookston 4-3 Thursday.

The Lakers did win three singles matches against Crookston, as Caleb Howard, Chandler Hanks and Austin Nelson each were victorious.

Junior Alex Fondrick won his No. 1 singles match against Thief River Falls’ Hunter Blowers, before falling to Crookston’s Bobby Tiedman.

“We were missing a few key players and did well compared to last year,” said DL head coach Patrick Starbeck.

“We are hitting better than I could have imagined.  I am very pleased with our play, and expect to get much better by the next time we meet these teams again.”

The Lakers will be in action Tuesday, April 22, when they host Bemidji, starting at 4:30 p.m.
