Despite a change in schedule, the Minot Majettes kept their winning ways going with Tuesday’s road victory over the Williston Coyotes. The meet was originally scheduled to be played in Minot.

Nonetheless, Minot was able to win all nine matches, and did not drop a single set the entire day. In No. 1 singles, junior Sofia Egge was a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Chesni Strand. Meanwhile, Eden Olson defeated Shelby Meyer 6-0, 6-1 in the No. 2 position.

In the No. 3 slot, MHS senior Morgan Wheeler topped Olivia Larson 6-0, 6-0. At No. 4, fellow Majettes senior Sydney Fettig beat Riley Higgs 6-3, 6-0. Freshman Sienna Ronning got the better of Riley Rude in the No. 5 matchup 6-4, 7-5, and Sidney Ressler defeated Clara Henson 6-2, 6-2 to finish up singles competition.

In doubles, Egge and Olson defeated Strand and Meyer in straight sets 6-2, 6-2. At No. 2, Wheeler and Fettig were 6-2 and 6-0 winners over Rude and Larson. In No. 3 doubles, the freshman duo of Ronning and Ressler took care of Higgs and Henson 7-5, 6-2.

Afterwards, Minot head coach Scott DeLorme says he was quite happy with how the club performed after making the adjustment to its schedule. “We had a very good day,” DeLorme told the Minot Daily News. “We were able to pick up nine wins without dropping a set and we are confident we know what our top four can do. The bottom of our varsity lineup and junior varsity lineup made some big strides today and showed us they can compete at that level.”

Up next for the Majettes, they will host Dickinson in a home dual meet Thursday at Hammond Park.
