Sun Prairie won a pair of three-set matches and that was the difference as the Cardinals defeated Janesville Craig 5-2 in a Big Eight Conference girls tennis match Tuesday afternoon.

“We lost the close matches,” Craig coach Steve Mickelson said. “It was a match we could have won. We had our opportunities.”

The bright spot for the Cougars continues to be the play of No. 3 singles player Allison Grund and No. 4 singles player Bethany Laatsch. Both are 6-0 in Big Eight Conference play.

Grund won her match 6-1, 6-1, while Laatsch was nearly as impressive with a 6-2, 6-1 win.

The Cougars, 4-3 in conference action, host Madison West on Thursday.
