The move to Section 4AA this season paid off handsomely for the Mounds View High School boys tennis team. The Mustangs swept the section championships and have plenty of representation at this week’s state tournament.
With only one senior and little experience on the roster this spring, the North High School boys tennis team is likely to struggle. Head coach Jerry Diebel isn’t worried so much about wins and losses as he is about the psyche of his players.
After ruling Section 5AA for quite a few years, the Mounds View High School girls tennis team found itself shifted back to Section 4AA this fall. That move proved to be the end of the Mustangs' streak of consecutive state appearances.
It was a clash of School District rivals on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Tartan tennis courts. In the end, the North High Polars were on top, 5-2, to gain their first Metro East Conference win of the girls tennis season.
