Mackenzie will continue to push herself to big successes at the end of the season.”
Girls' tennis: junior Hannah Lindemoen and freshman Brekken Tull

She has a very unique outside-in serve which he opponents have trouble with. Her most recent win was at #4 singles against Parkers Prairie 6-0, 6-0.
"Brekken has really found her way in singles this year and playing very well. She moves her opponent around the court well and has a good balance of consistency and power. She has been 10-2 overall this year and has been a key part to the team’s success.”
