Foster is runner-up in state singles tournament

FARGO – Minot High School junior Dustin Foster capped a strong tennis season with a runner-up finish at the state singles tournament Saturday.

Foster beat Grand Forks Red River sophomore Andrew Godon 7-5, 6-0 in a semifinal and lost to Red River junior Greg Wischer 6-0, 6-1 in the championship.

“Dustin played really well, but Wischer is one of the top high school players in the Midwest,” MHS coach Scott DeLorme said in a press release. “Even though he settled for second, Dustin really did everything for our team this year and he deserves a lot of credit for his hard work in the offseason.”

Foster was the only Magician named to the all-state team.

The Roughriders won the team championship Friday for the 16th consecutive year and now own the past three singles titles and six of the previous doubles titles. West Fargo’s Brady Ballweber and Keyan Farahmand won the doubles championship over a Red River pair.

Bishop Ryan senior Isaac Massey was the only other Magician playing Saturday. Massey fell to Marcus Osman, of Davies, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 in consolation play.
