Storm clouds kept the Jamestown High School tennis team from finishing its match Thursday night at Jamestown's Bollinger Courts.

The Jays hosted and fell 7-0 to Minot but were unable to conclude the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles matches due to inclement weather. The Majettes took all six singles matches and Sofia Egge and Eden Olson were able to sneak a 6-3, 6-4 win at the No. 1 doubles spot.

Grace LeFevre managed to keep pace with Sidney Ressler at the No. 6 spot but with a couple of well-placed shots, Ressler took both sets 6-4.

The Jays' No 1, Phoebe Olson, also put up a fight but ended up falling to Egge 6-3, 6-4.

The Jays are slated to travel north tomorrow to take on Grand Forks Central. The dual is scheduled to begin at noon.
