Morris Areas' near win rained out in Marshall
The Morris Area tennis team participated in the Marshall Quadrangular Saturday and hosted Osakis Monday.
"We had some exciting well played matches in each of the three matches," said coach Jim Gillis. "Unfortunately the rain interrupted the conclusion of our second match and about half of the third match.
"We were so close to closing out a team victory with Worthington, but the weather just would not cooperate."
The format was two out of three sets with no-ad scoring. A split in the first two sets results in a super tie-breaker (to 10) for the third set.
