La Follette adds to list of frustrating Craig tennis losses
Janesville Craig’s girls tennis team suffered its third one-point loss of the Big Eight Conference dual meet season Thursday.
Madison La Follette won three of four singles matches en route to a 4-3 win over the Cougars.
Craig High (3-5) got wins from Claire Gloede (17-3) at No. 4 singles, along with the doubles teams of Taylor Storbakken and Maggie Bolton at No. 1, and Minaliza Shahlapour and Siarra Sroda at No. 2.
“We could just as easily be 6-2 in the Big Eight,” Craig High coach Bill Peyer said. “We’ve lost three really tough matches.”
