The Fort Dodge girls tennis team defeated Ankeny here on Monday, 7-4.

Jaci Cochrane, Kari Grindberg, Emily Knight and Abby Shimmon all earned singles wins for the Dodgers.

Fort Dodge also picked up doubles triumphs in three matches, including two in super tiebreakers.

"I was proud of the way the girls played," FDSH head coach Karine Feddersen said. "We had a lot of distractions with multiple events overlapping, but when the girls were on the courts, they were focused.

"Abby was fantastic, especially considering it was her varsity debut."
