Magi tennis continues winning ways against Century
BISMARCK — The Minot High School boys tennis team won its fifth straight match Monday evening with a 7-2 road victory over Bismarck Century.
The Magicians improved to 7-1 overall (7-1 WDA) this season.
“Traveled to Century today and got a nice 7-2 win on the road against a team that is getting better,” MHS head coach Scott DeLorme said. “We got strong singles play again, winning five of the six to secure the team win.”
Picking up singles wins were No. 2 Zach Renaud, No. 3 Ridge Jaeger, No. 4 Hunter Rice, No. 5 Aidan Diehl and No. 6 Colby Opp.
No. 1 Zach Diehl couldn’t take down Century’s top player Jared Pitcher to earn the sweep.
Zach Diehl got revenge with Jaeger in a 7-5, 5-7, 10-5, No. 1 doubles win over Pitcher and Jaxon Wetzel.
Aidan Diehl and Opp also partnered for a No. 3 doubles victory at 6-2, 6-3.
“The bottom half of our varsity lineup continues to have great success and has been a huge part of our success so far this season,” DeLorme said. “We thought our depth would be a positive advantage for us, and it has proven to be that way so far.”
The Magi have a quick turnaround with a crucial match at 4:15 p.m. this afternoon against WDA-leading Bismarck Legacy (7-0) at Hammond Park in Minot.
The Sabers dealt the Magi their only loss this season, 6-3, on Aug. 25.
