REDWOOD FALLS - Brothers Bryan and Blaine Doeden won two matches Thursday in the first round of the Section 3A individual tennis tournament.
The Trojan duo, seeded fourth in the tournament, defeated Yellow Medicine East’s Cody Speh and Ammon Bennett 6-2, 6-0 in their first match, then overcame problems in the first set against Luverne’s Dalton Schoeneman and Layne Curtis to win 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.
The section individual semifinals and finals are Tuesday at Redwood Falls.
In singles play, Worthington’s Brandon Harberts lost a first-round match 6-0, 6-0 to Lac Qui Parle Valley standout Jess Hanson. Luverne’s Mark Robinson beat Worthington’s Kyle Jansen 6-0, 6-4 in a first-round contest and in the second round Hanson dispatched Robinson 6-0, 6-0.
Luverne’s doubles pair of Schoeneman and Curtis won a first-round match against Worthington’s Gage Langerud and Sebastian Licea 6-1, 6-0.
The Luverne doubles team of Erik Wohnoutka and Chris Jelken won two matches Thursday to advance to the semifinals.
Their first victory was over MACCRAY’s Robert Garza and Carter Tomes 6-0, 6-0. They next beat Troy Diggins and Henry Strunc of Montevideo 6-0, 6-1.
LHS singles player Jacob Jarchow ousted Redwood Valley’s Sam Christeson 6-3, 6-0 in a first-round match before falling to Montevideo’s Noah Stoeckman 6-3, 6-4.
“Erik and Chris really played well today, beating a young MACCRAY team and then convincingly beating a pretty good No. 8 team from Montevideo,” said Luverne head coach Greg Antoine. “They really served well today and in doubles that really sets up your partner to finish off weak returns.”
