The second-seeded Irish took on No. 3 Eastview Tuesday at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville, with the winner likely advancing to face South Suburban champion and No. 1 seed Prior Lake in tonight’s section finals.
When Rosemount faced South Suburban Conference champion Prior Lake during the regular season, the Lakers used a straight-set sweep of three doubles matches to claim a 4-3 victory.
Avoiding that sweep made the difference for the third-seeded Irish in Thursday’s rematch in the Section 3AA finals. The duo of sisters Megan and Emily Harrington rallied for a 2-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1 win at No. 2 doubles and the Irish claimed three out of four singles matches against the top-seeded Lakers to secure their second-ever state tournament berth with a 4-3 win at LifeTime Fitness in Lakeville.
Rosemount’s annual celebration of tennis should be bigger and better this year. The city of Rosemount, Rosemount High School and the Rosemount Area Athletic Association will all team up for Saturday’s tennis block party.
