The Waseca Bluejays girls tennis team hosted Mankato West, Le Sueur-Henderson and Owatonna Saturday morning in its Waseca Quadrangular.

“We had some very good competition and sportsmanship at the home tournament on Saturday,” said Bluejays head coach Kyle Collins. “We had many new players (Lexi Kanewischer, Ashton Jenzen, Esme Pearce and Lauren Drexler), who were playing their first varsity matches for us.”

The next opponent for Waseca was Mankato West, and the Bluejays again took a single match, as Sarah Haley won her No. 3 singles match.

“It was nice to see both of our Sarahs (Robbins & Haley) get wins against Le Sueur and West, respectively,” said Collins.

The final opponent of the day, the Owatonna Huskies, managed to take all seven matches over the Bluejays.

“I was impressed by the way we came out and battled against Le Sueur-Henderson and Mankato West, with so many young players in our lineup,” said Collins. “Owatonna has another strong team, especially in singles.”
