The match against Forest Lake came down to No. 1 doubles, where David Link and Lucas Lindstrom battled in a three-set loss, 7-6, 1-6, 6-3.

"They played great but just came up short in the third set," Park head coach Tony Townsend said.

Park (3-2; 0-2 SEC) has a busy week ahead. The Wolfpack took on Mounds View on Tuesday, after the Bulletin went to print. Next, the team faces East Ridge on Wednesday, Roseville on Thursday and South St. Paul on Friday.

"We are continuing to improve as a team and are very optimistic for the second half of the season," Townsend said.
