No doubles: play in post season ends once a team reaches 5 wins


Spirit Lake-Okoboji Coach Dan Taylor:

Our two previous regular season meets against Spencer had close matches, but they pulled out more of them in the end. And today's match followed the same pattern. The first hour of the meet things were looking great for us. Tom was on fire, Kyler was up a set, and Nick was up late in his first set. But once again, Spencer came through in the clutch and pulled out the majority of tight matches. We had the home court advantage going for us, but Spencer had the edge physically, as we had more time on court overall on Thursday, as well as 3 guys feeling under the weather, one of whom was unable to play. But all credit to Spencer- They showed that they will, with Lemars, represent the conference will at the substate finals next week. Monday is the conference tournament, and I anticipate we will have a strong finish to a great season as we host that competition.
