On one of the few nice days so far this spring, the Decorah girls tennis team hosted Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday night at the Luther courts.
Decorah had hoped to come through with at least a few victories; however, the Vikes were defeated 9-0.
“After finishing second to Waverly in the conference meet Saturday, there was thought of an upset or two in this dual match. Waverly came into Tuesday’s meet ready to play and left little doubt they are for real,” said Coach Larry Berland.
“After finishing their last two dual meets with identical 0-9 scores, Decorah finds itself hanging part way down the side of the cliff. The girls can decide to continue to hang and find ways to climb up the side and reestablish themselves on solid footing or just let go and fall even further down the side of the cliff,” he said. “Call me an optimist, but I fully expect them to claw their way out of the hole they find themselves in right now and make the last couple of weeks of the season worth the price of admission."
