Pierre Tennis Struggles in Sioux Falls

A breath of fresh air, the Pierre Tennis team was able to compete yesterday in the Sioux Falls Invite for the first time since last week before the storm surged through. The Governors had been off to a hot start but yesterday was a struggle for the team. They fell in both set of matches with Sioux Falls Washington and Brandon Valley only combining to win three games against the two teams. However, Luke Leingang continues to remain red hot as he won both of his matches against Garrett Mayers and Landon Kocer. Leingang won in straight sets in both matches but the most impressive victory was over Kocer who he didn’t allow to win a single game against him. Leingang combined to go 24-4 ysterday. Grant Judson won the other singles match to round out the three wins defeating Andrew Hanson of Brandon Valley, 6-1 and 6-4. You can see a complete list of the matches below.
