NEGAUNEE — Victories in all three tennis doubles matches — including the final bout of the day — gave the host Negaunee Miners a 4-3 girls dual meet tennis triumph over Gwinn Tuesday afternoon. Doubles teams of Laurie Young and Carrie Mapes, along with Kelly Kaikkonen and Amy Heikkenen put the team on a winning streak.

“The match that decided it was at No. 3 doubles,” Negaunee Coach Jack Tripp said after his netters pushed their season record to 1-3.

Chrystal Colson and Michelle Anderson of Negaunee outlasted Heather Erickson and Heidi Sather 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 to take the match.

“The key for us was to win that 7-6 tiebreaker in the second game to go into the third,” Tripp said.
