East Ridge boys tennis: Mog, Nigatu punch ticket to section quarterfinals
The Individual Section 3AA Tournament held 30 miles away in Lakeville hit home for rivals East Ridge and Park. Their top doubles teams, seeded fourth and fifth, respectively, fought for a trip to the semifinals on Tuesday, May 22.
Their quarterfinal face-off represented a re-match for the four players. Raptors senior Colton Mog and sophomore Zach Nigatu played the same two Park players -- freshman Mekdim DeJene and junior Jacob Elliott -- in singles during the regular season.
