GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Monti Knewton had a match point.
It was a chance to give West Fargo Sheyenne the state championship and end Grand Forks Red River’s run of 14 consecutive North Dakota state girls tennis titles.
She lost the point.
She lost her second match point, too. And a third. And a fourth. And a fifth. And a sixth. And a seventh.
Finally, on the eighth attempt, Knewton finished off a down-to-the-wire 7-6 (4), 7-6 (7) victory over Red River’s Shaelyn Johnson at No. 1 singles to give the Mustangs the championship and end Red River’s remarkable run of titles.
Sheyenne, which ended Red River’s run of 203 consecutive dual victories a week earlier in the East Region final, became the first team besides the Roughriders to win the state team title since Bismarck Century in 2001.
