Pirates are on the road Wed., host tournament Saturday
The Pirate girls' tennis team kicked off their season Friday with a quadrangular in Park Rapids, Minn. Crookston didn't get a win in its three duals but lost two of the three duals 4-3.
Mound Westonka, Crookston head coach Mike Geffre's alma mater, defeated Crookston 7-0. The Pirates took two of the matches into third sets but couldn't find a win.
The Pirates then lost 4-3 to Minnewaska, earning wins at first singles from freshman Ally Tiedemann, second doubles from freshman Jaden Lizakowski and junior Elisa Samuelson and third doubles from sophomores Megan Frisk and Elise Tangquist. Juniors Leah Trostad and Alyssa Schultz each took their singles matches into third sets but fell short of victories.
Aitkin topped Crookston 4-3 to finish the day. Crookston's wins came from junior Alyssa Fee at second singles, Lizakowski at fourth singles and the first doubles team of Trostad and freshman Amy Follette.
The Pirates are back at it Wednesday when they travel to Roseau for a dual with the Rams. Crookston hosts a tournament Saturday at 9 a.m.
