Hanna Himmelman made a return to Gustavus, Wednesday, Oct. 11, for the Section 3A singles tournament.

In her first match she took a steep loss to Renata Hernandez of St. James in a 6-0,6-0 game. Himmelman then made a comeback against Delaney Weber of United South Central 6-2,6-1. Vanessa Barkosky of Maple River knocked out Weber to take on Hernandez in the championship. Himmelman would get a second shot at second place, if Hernandez could beat Barkosky. After a long tension-filled game, with an even exchange of points, Barkosky emerged victorious 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 and Himmelman remained in third place.

“Hanna had a very nice showing at the Section 3A individual tournament,” said Coach Shane Laffen. “She just missed out on an opportunity to play a true second place match.”

“Overall, we had a bit of an up and down season. We lost several close matches,” said Laffen.
