The Minot High School boys tennis team didn't drop a set Friday in its 9-0 season-opening sweep of Jamestown at the Minot Indoor Tennis Center.
The Magi's No. 2 doubles team of seniors Lane Vendsel and Landon Klein played the closest match of the day, defeating Nick Watne and Nick Fuchs 6-3, 7-5.
"Nice to get the first win out of the way, but we definitely saw lots of items to work on," MHS coach Scott DeLorme said in a press release. "I think our doubles need to get way more aggressive, but many of our doubles teams had never played together and that will take some time."
Minot High School senior Landon Klein plays a leaping forehand during his No. 2 singles match against Jamestown on Friday at Cameron Indoor Tennis Center.
DeLorme was pleased with the way the Magicians put away their opponents in singles. Klein beat Declan O'Higgins 6-3, 6-2 at No. 2, but no other Jamestown player won more than three games.
Vendsel didn't drop a game in defeating Nate Soulis at the No. 5 spot.
"We stressed for our guys to not drag matches out and all six of our singles guys were able to get a lead to start and close it out in fairly quick fashion," DeLorme said. "Hopefully that has a lot to do with experience as we have upperclassmen at many of our positions."
The Magi play today in the Minot Round Robin, which begins at 9 a.m. at various courts around town.
