After suffering a 6-1 non-conference loss to Sauk Prairie on Tuesday, Sept. 7, the Lodi High School girls’ tennis team rebounded by blanking Columbus two days later.

At No. 3 singles, Caroline Karls defeated Morgan Stadler 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3 singles, and No. 4 singles player Brooke Bacon won by forfeit.

Lodi also swept Columbus in doubles matches, with the No. 1 tandem of Lexy Karls and Rylee Schneider cruising to a 6-1, 6-0 victory. Mira Potter and Ava Glaser shutout Kayla Hunt and Ella Clark 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles, while Tessa Pertzborn and Vivian Beld scored a 6-3, 6-0 decision at No. 3 doubles.
