Spirit Lake Okoboji Boys Coach Dan Taylor:

This meet was very much like the first time we played Spencer.  Most of the matches were extremely close, coming down to just a few points here or there, and Spencer came out on top in most of those close matches.  In #3 doubles, Nick & JP were just 2 points away from winning, and in singles Liam had a few match points.  But once again, as they have in all 4 meets against the best in the conference in Spencer and LeMars,  our guys fought very hard and stayed close enough that coming out on top in the team score was a possibility.  The brightest spot of the day was the victory at #1 doubles.  Kyler and Karson played incredible tennis today, and stayed undefeated at 8-0 on the season against one of the top doubles teams in the conference.  Kyler was also outstanding in singles, coming away with a solid win against a player who edged him out in their first meeting in April.
