MINNEAPOLIS — With two losses Thursday at the Class A boys’ state tennis meet, Worthington’s Danny Penaredondo and Tim Roos ended their playoff run.
“We both had our ups and downs and we both had to carry each other through,” Roos said. “At the end of the day, they stuck through it a lot better I think.”
In the first round, the Trojan pair lost a close match to Adam Cook and Dan Burke of Aitkin, 6-0, 6-7 (6-8), 6-4, to send Penaredondo and Roos to the consolation bracket.
“I think the first guys we played were better,” Roos said. “We were nervous, but it was a good nervous.”
In the second match of the day, Penaredondo and Roos fell to Jake Thompson and Luke Biermaier 6-2, 6-4.
“I think we had some good finishing shots,” Roos said. “Of course, there were some that weren’t good, but overall, when we were at the net, we did a lot better.”
