Dave Ronning is the Alexandria Cardinals Varsity Boys' and Girls' Tennis Coach.

(Alexandria, MN) -- Prior to a key Central Lakes Conference match today, Alexandria Cardinal Girls' Tennis Coach Dave Ronning offers an update during the Cardinal Sports Report after a pair of victories.

Later today (Tuesday), Alexandria's Girls' Tennis team is scheduled to travel to Brainerd for a match with the Warriors. The Cards and Warriors meet just once in the regular season, and both enter today's match undefeated in the CLC. The winner of today's match likely has the inside track to a Central Lakes Conference title. Coach Dave Ronning notes in the audio player below that his team has momentum after a pair of wins on the courts Monday afternoon.

The match in Brainerd is scheduled to start at 4:30 this afternoon, weather permitting.

The Cardinal Girls' Soccer team will make a journey to the Red River Valley of the North this evening, for a 7 p.m. match at Moorhead's Jim Gotta Stadium (on the campus of Moorhead High School). Alexandria raised its record to 8-2-1 last night, following a 3-0 victory over Saint Cloud Cathedral. That result extended the Cardinals' undefeated skein to seven games, posting six shutouts in that streak. 

Home competitions today for the Cardinals include a pair of events on the campus at Alexandria Area High School, including a Volleyball match against the defending Section 8AAA Champion Moorhead Spuds. On Saturday, the Cardinals traveled to play in the Chanhassen Invitational. Listen to an update from that tournament from Coach Mary Byrne.

The first serve at Alexandria Area High School's Pohlig Court is slated to be airborne early in the 7:00 hour this evening.

The other home event this evening will be a KXRA Radio broadcast, with D-Mac and Wes Thompson on the call. The Cardinal Boys' Soccer team will host Moorhead at Viking Bank Field. The first kick is slated for 7 p.m., with pre-match coverage starting at approximately 6:40. The Cards will seek a second win in as many nights, following a solid non-conference win on Monday. Hear the remarks from Brandon Johnson below.
