BISMARCK — The Dickinson High girls tennis team as a whole has already qualified for the North Dakota state tournament, but just one singles player and one doubles team moved forward to the final day of the West Region tournament.

The No. 7-seeded Lindsey Bakken received a first round bye and faced teammate Meryl Kovacs in the second round. Kovacs took the first set 6-4, but Bakken finished out the match winning the final two sets 7-6 (6), 6-3.

In the quarterfinals, Minot’s Ban Dodin shutout Bakken 6-0, 6-0, but the Dickinson senior can still qualify for the state tournament as she plays Bismarck St. Mary’s Regan Bradley at 8 a.m. today.

If Bakken wins, she is guaranteed at least eighth place and a spot in the state tournament. Bakken can place as high as fifth in the West Region Tournament.

In doubles, Bismarck Century’s Paige Fettig and Morgan Grinsteinner defeated Kayla Wallace and Ireland Jung in the first round. But the team bounced back and won their next two matches. Wallace and Jung beat Minot’s Alyssa Henson and Jenn Hamilton 6-3, 6-4 and Jamestown’s Maria Lefevre and Taylor Webber 6-3, 6-3.

The duo plays Jenna Reed and Bailey Graves from Jamestown at 10 a.m. today. Wallace and Jung are guaranteed an eighth-place finish, but can ended up in fifth with a pair of wins today.
