HURON — The Huron boys’ tennis team earned wins in two of the three matches during a quadrangular meet on Saturday at Huron Courts.

“We picked up big dual wins against Watertown and Pierre,” Huron coach Tim Hedblom said. “I am very pleased with how well the boys played today.”

The Tigers edged Watertown 5-4 and got past Pierre 7-2. They swept the doubles competition against the Governors and won two of the three doubles matches against the Arrows.

“All three doubles teams played extremely well,” Hedblom said. “They played very well against Sioux Falls Lincoln, who will be one of the favorites in Class AA.”

Lincoln emerged with a 9-0 win against the Tigers, but all three of the doubles matches were competitive.
Huron will return to action Monday with matches against Harrisburg and Sioux Falls Christian in Harrisburg at noon.
