Pirate freshman Jaeden Lizakowski earned three wins Tuesday.
Pirate freshman Jaeden Lizakowski earned three wins Tuesday as Crookston beat Long Prairie-Grey Eagle 6-1 but lost 5-2 to both Park Rapids and Pequot Lakes at the Park Rapids Quadrangular.
"Jaeden had three wins and had a great performance," Pirate head coach Mike Geffre said.
Players earning two wins for the Pirates included junior Tori Demarais, junior Elisa Samuelson, freshman Ally Tiedemann and the doubles team of juniors Alyssa Schultz and Marie Sandman.
"It's nice to have Tori Demarais out for tennis," coach Geffre said. "She really contributes in our lineup. Leah Trostad improved on the day after a slow start. Singles is not her forte. Her match against Park, she played well. Amy Follette played well against Pequot. We are moving forward in the right direction. We need them to keep believing that if they keep improving, come tournament time they'll be in the mix."
The Pirates got their first looks at two of the top teams in Section 8A.
"Our match with Park Rapids was close, we lost two three setters in which we won the first set in both," coach Geffre said. "It was a good match that could go either way. Pequot has four really tough players they put at singles. That's a little tougher matchup for us. We have to find a way to win one of those singles matches if we meet them along the way."
The Pirates travel to Moorhead Friday for a dual with the Spuds then to East Grand Forks Thursday, Sept. 4 for a dual with the Green Wave.
