Breanna Hines

Breanna Hines returns a shot to Addison Sell during the Gobbler’s Sept. 3 match against Pine City.

The Pine City Tigers swept a pair of matches with the Aitkin Gobbler tennis team last week, dropping the locals to 0-4 on the season.

The Gobbler’s fell 7-0 Aug. 31 on the road and Sept. 3 at home.

“It was another very tough week for our young players,” said coach Jen Waldorf. “We work hard, have very tough competition and we are young and inexperienced.

“Our singles players are showing potential and improving their strategy,” she added. “Our kids know they are going to take a lot of lumps this season.”

Waldorf praised the work of Macy Paulbeck at No. 3 singles Sept. 3.

“Macy had a great match today and probably should have won but got nervous and lacked the confiedence to finish,” Waldorf said. “They just don’t have enough match experience and it shows.”

Aitkin will play Pierz at home Sept. 10 at 4:30 p.m., following the Labor Day holiday weekend.
