Our 3rd Valley JV Doubles Invitational for the Roughriders started rough with 4 out of the 5 pairs losing in the first round. Fortunately for this tournament, there is a consolation for 1st round loser. And in that, 2 teams, Avery Bandstra/Andy Kramer and Kade VonderLinde/Luke Stenberg won 2 matches to advance to the semifinals where they both lost to Waukee's top two teams.
Wyatt Johnson and Nathaniel Sheeley actually beat Waukee's #1 in 3 sets in the 1st round. But unfortunately ran into the eventual finalists from Valley in the next round. It was a total random draw with no seeded teams.
But for everyone, it was extremely difficult to play in the high southern wind. Hopefully, we can keep improving for next year!
