LEMARS — The Spirit Lake/Okoboji girls team swept Lemars in Lakes Conference action last Thursday.

The highlight match of the night came at the No. 4 singles. Kara Crosgrove trailed 8-1 and came back to win in the tiebreaker for an 11-10 (7-4) victory.

“She’s a great competitor, and has great strokes,” said SL/O coach Bob O’Hara. “As the season goes on I think Kara will become less streaky and won’t have to make great comebacks in order to win.”

In other singles play, Alli Gerking won 10-3 over Samantha Rich; Kassie Hein won 10-1 over Caitlin Bauerly; Cassidy Clarity won 10-2 over Amelia Stonesifer; Shirley Coenen won 10-3 over Molly Fisher and Kathleen Rowley won 10-2 over Erica Westhoff.

In doubles, Gerking and Hein won 10-7 over Rich and Bauerly; Crosgrove and Clarity won 10-7 over Stonesifer and Miller; and Coenen and Rowley won 10-4 over Fischer and Westhoff.
