Jones, Robinson victors following marathon doubles match

Vermillion's Nos. 1 and 2 tennis players, Claire Jones and Val Robinson, played on and on and on into the dying twilight Monday night, but it was worth it in the end.

Jones and Robinson teamed up for a 10-7 tiebreaker win over Mitchell's No. 1 doubles team of Amanda Hegg and Kendra Cersosimo after winning the first set in a 7-4 tiebreaker and dropping the second set 6-2.

It had already been a marathon afternoon and evening for Jones and Robinson.  Each of them had split sets in their respective singles matches, and each lost 10-8 tiebreakers, Jones losing to Hegg and Robinson to Courtney Wells.

The doubles win was Vermillion's only point in an 8-1 loss to Mitchell.

Sioux Falls O'Gorman dominated the Tanagers in every match in a 9-0 dual win in Sioux Falls last Thursday.  Vermillion was shut out in six of the matches and scored only a single point in the other three.

The season concludes Oct. 6-7-8 at the state tournament in Sioux Falls.
