KINGSFORD — In a Mid-Peninsula Conference girls tennis matchup, Iron Mountain hosted Gladstone at the Kingsford High School tennis facility. The teams battled to a 4-4 tie in a match that was held at KHS due to overnight rain in the Iron Mountain area.
“Natalia Brown did an excellent job fighting back after a tough first set. She made the necessary adjustments to take control of the match and come out of there with a win. Matches like these will help us as we head towards MPCs and U.P.’s,” Celello added.
GLADSTONE 4, IRON MOUNTAIN 4
Iron Mountain returns to action on Thursday as they’ll host both Westwood and Ishpeming in Mid-Peninsula and West PAC Conference matches, before hosting Menominee on Monday in a non-conference dual.
“We had a lot of close matches across the board today. Our three and four doubles both had hard-fought matches that didn’t go our way, but I’m proud of the way they battled,” said Iron Mountain coach Marcus Celello.
