Junior Megan Muller did not give up a point at No. 1 singles as the Patriot tennis team improved to 7-0 on the season with a 7-0 win over Perham/New York Mills on Friday, Sept. 18.

“This match was much more competitive at most positions than the overall team score reflected,” Head Coach Monica Sergent said. “Perham has a solid program and it shows.”

Carly Chaney, Riley Fogarty and Quinn Trottier also picked up singles victories for a Patriot team that has won five consecutive Mid-State Conference matchups.

The No. 3 doubles team of Allyson Yahn and Kelsi Martini battled out of a 5-2 deficit in the second set to win 7-6.

“The work ethic these girls have is starting to really pay off,” Sergent said. We are seeing huge growth and improvement from all of the varsity and JV players as well as great team chemistry.”
