Mitchell used a sweep of the singles matches to rally for a 7-2 over Watertown in a high school boys tennis dual on Friday at the Highland Park courts.

It was the first outdoor home match of the season for the Arrows (11-5), who won two of the three doubles matches before Mitchell rebounded in singles.

“We came out and played some really good doubles,” said Watertown head Coach Ryan Zink. “We fought hard and had some great matches in singles, but we just didn’t pick up any wins.”

Watertown is off until Tuesday when it competes in the Eastern South Dakota Conference tournament at Huron.
