"The highlight of the day for a determined Decorah team was junior Soleil Smith winning all three of her matches and finishing first in her singles flight -- not an easy task to say the least, but indicative of Soleil's determination on the court and her work ethic to improve every time she steps on the court. Kudos to each player for placing in singles or doubles," says Coach Berland.
