Hi-Liner Tennis on the Upswing

August 30, 2013

Perennial tennis championship contender Grand Forks Red River visited Valley City for an Eastern Dakota Conference match on Thursday amid a week of heat-induced schedule changes.

Red River took the match, 9-0, though Hi-Liner head coach Matt Nielson was impressed with his team's efforts.

"Red River is Red River," Nielson said. "They haven't won the state championship 14 consecutive time because they are lucky — they are the best in the state. Their No. 1's to No. 4's all have the talent to win the state championship. Their No. 5, (Andrew) Godon, took 5th in the state last year."
