Comments From SL-O Boys Tennis Coach Dan Taylor:

Storm Lake is very tough at the top of the lineup. Their top two are returning players from a couple seasons ago and are, in my opinion, one of the top doubles teams in the state. Both Logan and Caleb played very well at 5 and 6 and got us comfortable wins, and Caleb also teamed up with Paul to get a win over those same players at 3 doubles. I do think this is a meet that is winnable next time we see them. Ben had a close 10-7 loss at #4, and 2 doubles was competitive, so when we play 2 of 3 sets next time those are matches we could possibly flip and get a 5-4 win. It is challenging playing the two strongest teams in the conference right out of the gate, but it should be good preparation for facing our opponents next week.
