KINGSFORD – The rivalry between Iron Mountain and Kingsford Twin City was renewed again Monday afternoon, as the two schools took to the hard courts for girls’ non-conference tennis. The teams dueled to a 4-4 tie; Iron Mountain swept the singles matches, while Kingsford captured all of the doubles.

The game was Iron Mountain’s home game, but it took place at Kingsford High School’s tennis facility, so all games could be played in one place. This decision was made by both team coaches and sports directors.

“It’s always a positive sign if we can win our singles matches, and I’m proud of the way all four girls played,” said Iron Mountain coach Marcus Celello. “Claire Mongrain and Arianna Morel have once again proven their ability to hold onto the top of our lineup, as they have consistently shown throughout the season.”

Celello added that Callie Bianco has a very strong season, and Elle Lofholm continues to improve every game.

Kingsford head coach Tracy Rutter commented, “Today was a perfect setting for a fun rival game against crosstown. Singles scores again do not reflect their competence. We have to find consistency.

“Our doubles continue to impress me, all our doubles teams work and communicate so well together.”

The Flivvers stay at home today and receive Westwood in a non-conference match. Iron Mountain moves to Ishpeming on Wednesday after today’s game with Gladstone was postponed.

“I would have liked us to play at least one of our doubles today. However, these competitions provided us with some learning opportunities and areas to improve, such as communication and footwork. “ Cellelo added.
