During the late afternoon hours today (Tuesday), the Alexandria Girls' Tennis team will put its 5-1 record on the line against the Willmar Cardinals. One may anticipate a highly competitive match, which is slated for a 4:30 start. Both Alexandria and Willmar have been defeated by Saint Cloud Tech by 4-3 scores.

After today's home match at the Alexandria Area High School tennis courts, a road trip is ahead on Thursday for the Alexandria Cardinals.
Alexandria's Girls' Soccer squad will host Willmar, and KXRA Radio will have live broadcast coverage. Two seniors on this year's Alexandria team joined KXRA Sports Director Dave McClurg following a home win against Saint Cloud Apollo last Thursday. Midfielder Emma Reineke provided comments on being one of the rotating Captains on this year's team.
She and teammate Kamryn Coauette are presently serving as Cardinal Captains, along with Molly Panther, who has been designated as a Captain for the full 2020 season. Each of the rotating Captains holds that leadership role for 2-4 matches of the season. Coauette visited with D-Mac last week, to share impressions of how the season has developed so far.
