Two Bucs earn post-season honors
Two Blue Earth Area tennis team members were named to Big South Conference All-Conference honors last week.
Jack Frundt gained All-Conference honors in the East Division, with 20 conference points during the season.
Parker Kienitz, with 18 conference points, was named to the BSC All-Conference Honorable Mention list.
Frundt, a junior, ended his season with a 4-8 record. He played at No. 1 singles most of the year. He went doubles at the end of the year in the Individual Section Tournament with his brother Nick. The two easily won their first round match before falling to a Rochester Lourdes duo.
“Jack is a great leader of the team and helps keep the team focused,” Buc coach Konny Wolff says. “He possesses a positive attitude on and off the court.”
Kienitz, the only senior on the Buccaneer team, played second singles and No. 1 doubles most of the year. His record for the season was 5-6.
“Parker was our captain and did a good job leading the team. He always did whatever was asked of him,” coach Wolff says. “He has been on the team since seventh grade and he will be missed next year.”
