Menomonie’s tennis team traveled to La Crosse Logan on Tuesday and claimed a 4-3 victory to improve its season record to 7-1.

Twos and threes were lucky numbers for the Mustangs as it earned victories at No. 2 and 3 singles and No. 2 and 3 doubles.

Richard Stewart claimed the No. 2 singles victory with a narrow 7-6 (5), 6-4 win over Hayden Jobe. P.J. Bundy-Wurtz remained solid at No. 3 singles - after falling behind 0-4 - and edged Xiaotong Wang 7-6 (4), 6-1.

“Rich is doing a great job of wearing down his opponent,” said Menomonie coach Bryce Supri. “There was one game that went back and forth from deuce, lasting more over 20 minutes. The Logan player ended up holding serve in that game, but serving for that long really takes a toll. Right after that game, Rich won three in a row to win the match.”

The No. 2 doubles team of Seth Kralewski and Dakota Paulson topped Nick Storlie and Paul Lee, 6-1, 7-5 while the duo of Devon Heim and Ramon Rojo won the No. 3 doubles match over Chris Freese and Chase Fierken, 6-2, 6-3.

“Seth and Dakota work great togetehr and play with a high energy level which is needed at doubles,” said Supri.

Evan Pelke lost a close No. 1 single match, 4-6, 3-6 to Quentin Lamers. Austen Nelsen fell 3-6, 6-4, 4-6 to Sam Deetz at No. 4 singles.

The No. 1 doubles team of Chris Pabich and Kevin Challe lost 1-6, 2-6 to Dan Bonifas and Jordan Dittmer.
