ST. PETER — Blue Earth Area’s senior doubles combination of Vern Johnson and Nick Frundt closed out their high school tennis careers with a pair of fourth-place Section 2A medals.

No. 2-seeded Marty Anderson and Cooper Dean of St. Peter served a 6-1, 6-3 semifinal loss to Johnson and Frundt during Thursday’s sectional individual semifinals at the Swanson Indoor Tennis Center on the Gustavus Adolphus College campus in St. Peter.

Southwest Christian of Chaska’s Luke Schwen and Max Schmidt then outslugged Johnson and Frundt in the section doubles bracket’s bronze-medal clash.

Schwen and Schmidt claimed the opening set by a 6-2 decision before fending off Frundt and Johnson by a narrow 6-4 second-set score.

Ironically, Schwen and Schmidt would be denied an opportunity to place for true-second and a state bid.

Anderson and Dean teamed to upend top-seeded Alex Draeger and Braden Olson of Litchfield for the Section 2A doubles championship via back-to-back 6-4 set wins.

Since Draeger and Olson had defeated Schwen and Schmidt in Thursday’s earlier semifinals, 6-2, 7-6 (7-2), there was no challenge match granted.

St. Peter’s Anderson and Dean, along with Litchfield’s Draeger and Olson, open action in the Class A state individual doubles meet at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 9, at Reed-Sweatt Tennis Center in Minneapolis.

In the Section 2 singles bracket, No. 2-seeded Mason Woelfel of Litchfield netted the gold medal by posting a 6-3, 6-2 victory over No. 1-seeded Michael Frost of Holy Family Catholic.

Frost, who had opened Thursday’s competition with a 6-3, 6-2 semifinal win over Litchfield’s Garrison Jackman, will join Woelfel in the state singles competition starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, June 9, at Reed-Sweatt.

After falling to Frost, Jackman edged Jack Schaefer of HFC in a hard-fought 6-4, 7-5 third-place match. Schaefer moved to the consolation singles bracket on Thursday when Woelfel netted back-to-back 6-3 set wins over him in the semifinals.
