With his No. 1 doubles team staring at a 7-2 tie-breaker deficit - just one point away from a loss and a fourth place finish - SCHS tennis coach Corbin Janssen issued a challenge.
“I told them they have to show they want to be here and that they need to have some mental toughness,” Janssen said during a break in the match.
“It all begins with winning one point and then you find a way to win the next point,” he told the team of Lanae Haupt and Cynthia Gonzalez.
Not only did they win the next point, but they won seven straight to pull off an unlikely 9-7 tiebreaker win for third place in the Scott City Invitational on Monday.
The only loss for Haupt/Gonzalez (10-3) came in the semi-finals to Colby (8-4) who went on to claim the tournament title.
