All good things must come to an end and the Perham boys tennis team had its nine match win streak come to a close at the hands of rival Detroit Lakes on May 11.

The Lakers defeated Perham by a narrow, 4-3, margin with the Yellowjackets using a different lineup. The Lakers swept the singles portion of the event, while Perham swept the doubles events.

“Overall, I’m very pleased at how we played,” Perham head coach Jameson Miller said. “It’s always tough losing a close match but you have to give credit to Detroit Lakes as they deserved the win. I went with a lineup that i felt confident with so Detroit Lakes earned it by playing some tough tennis.”

Miller said he wanted to move some players around and get them out of their comfort zone with sections approaching.

“I feel comfortable that we’re ready to respond come section time as all teams will be moving lineups around to try and get as many matchup advantages as they can,” Miller said.
