Cresap wins again for Perham netters

Jordan Cresap has been tallying wins for the Perham tennis team at number four singles.

The Perham tennis team took two matches from Section 8A rival Park Rapids before being swept by Crookston at the Park Rapids Traingular.

Jordan Cresap got a win in the number four singles position beating Jonah Pearson of Park Rapids one and two. Cresap was also the lone Yellowjacket singles player to take a match at the Bemidji meet earlier in April.

"He plays very consistent tennis," Head Coach Kyle Knutson said. "When he trusts his stroke and hits hard he can be very effective. He has potential to do great things on the tennis court."

The number three doubles duo of Trevor Meece and Madison Paridon got the other Perham win needing three sets and 16 games in the final set 5-7, 6-4, 9-7.
