Mandan adds two runner-up finishes at state tennis tournament

  • 0

Mandan High's tennis team fell just short of two more state championships in Grand Forks on Saturday.

In the state championship singles match, Elizabeth Felderman fell to West Fargo Sheyenne’s Mimi Gu, 6-4, 6-4, in a matchup of No. 1 seeds.

Felderman, a senior, and Gu, a junior, had met twice during the season with each player winning once. 

Felderman, who was trying to become the first champion from the West since Caitlin Bakke of Bismarck St. Mary’s in 2013, won her semifinal match over Paige McCormick of Fargo Davies, 6-3, 6-4.

Gu had little trouble setting up the anticipated final, dispatching Maddie Abbott of Fargo Shanley, 6-0, 6-1.

The Braves also had a doubles team advance to the championship round.

In the semifinals, freshman Sophia Felderman and senior Breanna Helbling knocked off East Region champions Lily Andrews and India Rohl, 7-6 (4), 7-5. The win by Felderman and Helbling set up a rematch of the West Region championship match.

Once again the Minot duo of Sofia Egge and Eden Olson prevailed, defeating Felderman and Helbling, 6-4, 6-4.

Mandan won its first state team title on Thursday, rolling 5-0, 5-0 and 4-1, the last win coming over Minot in the championship match.

Legacy left Grand Forks with some more hardware.

Camaryn Beasley and Sierra Knoll finished their careers strong. The Sabers’ seniors placed third in doubles, defeating Andrews and Rohl, 7-6 (3), 6-4.

The Sabers took fourth in the team tournament on Saturday.
