Milbank hosted their first triangular tennis match of the 2021 season against Huron and Sioux Falls Christian on Tuesday, August 17. Hattie Muellenbach led the Lady Bulldogs with four wins. She won two singles matches and two doubles matches along with her partner Alexis Ninneman.
As a team, Milbank fell 3-6 to both visitors, but Coach Abby Trapp said a change in the lineup added an extra level of difficulty. “We had our No. 7 singles player in for our No. 2 player. The final score doesn’t represent how hard and how well the girls played.”
