The Tomah High School girls tennis team passed its toughest test to date Thursday with a 5-2 Mississippi Valley Conference victory at Holmen.

The Timberwolves stayed undefeated with a 9-0 overall record and 2-0 MVC mark.

Tomah coach Ben Bannan described it as a “great competitive match.” Six of the seven matches were closely contested with one match going to three sets and two others decided by a tiebreaker in the first set.

The only blowout came at number-three singles, where Tomah’s Whitney Kuehl gained a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Samantha Marr. Bannan said Kuehl “played well” and “controlled the pace” of the match. Kuehl boosted her season record to 8-1.
