Shakopee tennis beats Mankato East, loses to Minnetonka
(Individuals will begin their quests for state honors shortly.)
It was a great run for the young Shakopee Sabers, which include stalwart eighth and ninth graders who, under the leadership of a great coaching staff, have pushed the envelope again, stunning fans with upsets and unexpected victories on the way to this singular achievement.
They'll be back again next year, extending the tennis dynasty for the glory of their school and hometown.
Congratulations Ford, we're proud of your work building the program and your team!
Two satisfied Shakopee taxpayers,
Aunt Katie and Uncle Stan
Ford Rolfsrud and his sister, Breck, are both Mankato East tennis alumni. Breck now serves as an assistant coach for East. Today their parents watched the siblings battle it out, remaining strictly neutral, of course. Another proud day for Mom and Dad, indeed.
The season's not over yet. They still have a chance to send a number of players to state. The individual tournament starts soon.
