BROOKINGS – Aberdeen Central picked up three victories over Eastern South Dakota Conference foes during the Brookings Quadrangular on Friday.

The Golden Eagles blanked Brookings 9-0, edged Yankton 5-4 and defeated Harrisburg 8-1.

While Central won each dual, there were plenty of close matches along the way.

“This is ESD stuff here now,” said Central coach John Vogel of the level of competition. “We were expecting it and we’re really glad how it worked out.”

Not only did the Eagles win each dual, because of a variety of circumstances, Vogel was able to use his full roster on the day.

“That’s what was nice. That was fun,” he said. “I brought 12 girls and we played 12 girls.”

Emily Ringgenberg continued her stellar play so far this season, grabbing three more singles wins, one in a tiebreaker against Harrisburg.

“Emily played great today,” Vogel said. “Everyone is going after her now. I’m sure she has a target back on her back.”

Vogel said the Harrisburg match was a battle to the end.

“This young Harrisburg girl, boy did she come to fight,” Vogel said. “It was a young Emily Ringgenberg; same exact style.”

In the end, Ringgenberg came up big rallying from down 7-9 to force a tiebreaker and then securing the victory.

“Emily is a really good tie-break player,” Vogel said. “I like her chances in a tie break.”

While the dual score against Harrisburg was lopsided, there were three tiebreakers and several other close matches along the way.

“That 8-1 is the toughest 8-1 I think I’ve ever been a part of,” Vogel said.

In the end, the Eagles played well and finished off a long day of tennis on a positive note.

“We had to support each other and compete, and then say hey, if we can, let’s win them all,” Vogel said. “But the first thing, let’s support each other and compete, and the girls did a good job of that today.”

Central is right back at it again today facing Huron and Watertown during the Brookings Jamboree.
