Girls tennis: Ponies overtake Chisago Lakes

Playing at third doubles, Lexie Sherrick and Amanda Williams needed a tie-breaker to win the first set but then cruised to a 7-6 (7-3), 6-0 victory over Danielle Dahlheimer and Sierra Stendahl.

Savannah Johnson topped Sami Hindt 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1 singles and the Ponies also received straight set victories from Aliza Deming (6-4, 6-3) and Shelby Anderson (6-4, 6-3) at second and third singles.
