Team competition came to an end for the Clear Lake girls tennis team Saturday, May 16, in Regional competition at the Wartburg College indoor facilities in Waverly.  The Lions will, however, participate in the Individual Regionals Thursday, May 21, in Decorah.

Loudenburg fell 1-6, 4-6; Jones went down 2-6, 1-6; Jordan was defeated 4-6, 1-6; and Bottjen lost 1-6, 2-6.

Baalson dropped her first set, 3-6, and was tied 3-3 when the match was called.  Brackey fell 1-6. 0-6, giving W-SR the victory.

In doubles, Loudenburg and Jones dropped the first set 2-6, but were up, 3-2 in the second set when the match was called.  Jordan and Bottjen were in progress, 1-6, 3-3 when play was stopped.
