Robbins and Yokiel won their semifinal match against Taylor Volk and Tina Aarsvold 6-2, 6-2 to get them to a championship match against Anna Dreismane and Kayla Trocke. Yokiel and Robbins dropped the match 5-7, 3-6.

“(In) their Saint Peter match everything was flowing,” Rebels head coach Kim Johnson said. “The next two weren’t exactly their ‘A’ game but they didn’t get a lot of breaks either.”

Yokiel and Robbins finished 22-2 on the season.

Ali Ramsely finished fourth on the individual side.

Ramsely lost her semifinal match against Heather Annis from Maple River 0-6, 1-6 and then lost 4-6, 4-6 against Maura Flaherty.

“She hit impressively,” Johnson said. “The scores don’t really reflect, she played a lot deuces.

“For her as a sophomore, in the top four is a great place for her to be.”
