Brackets and Results

Class A
– The Blake School returns to defend its 2015 title. If the Bears win, it would be their second consecutive title and their 10th overall. The Blake School was also the top-ranked team in the final coaches’ poll of the season. Six other teams also return from the 2015 tournament: Rochester Lourdes, third; St. James, which includes students from Butterfield-Odin and Mountain Lake Christian, fourth; Virginia, fifth; and Foley, sixth. Minnewaska Area, which was a co-op with Brandon-Evansville last year, and Holy Family Catholic both fell in the consolation semifinals. The Class A team tournament is not seeded.
Class AA – The Edina Hornets return in search of their 20th consecutive team title and their 32nd overall. Edina East also won three consecutive crowns between 1978-1980. Six other teams return from the 2015 field: Prior Lake, runner-up; Mahtomedi, third; Eagan, fourth; St. Cloud Tech, fifth; and Rochester Mayo, sixth. Delano bowed out in the consolation semifinals.
This is the fifth year that the Class AA team tournament has been seeded. The top five seeds this year, in order, are: Edina, St. Cloud Tech, Eagan, Prior Lake and Mahtomedi. St. Cloud Tech was the top team in the final coaches’ poll.

Class A
– Senior Libby Rickeman of The Blake School returns to defend her 2015 singles title. She is also the top-seeded player for a second consecutive year. Ninth-grader Arlina Shen of The Blake School, who claimed runner-up honors last year, is the No. 3 seed this year. Senior Izabella Edin of Staples Motley is seeded No. 2 and sophomore Katie Mulvey of Trinity School at River Ridge of Eagan is No. 4. Cindy Li, a junior from Cotter of Winona, also returns this year. Mulvey and Li finished in fourth and fifth place, respectively, in 2015.
Senior Grace Zumwinkle of Breck School is looking for her third consecutive doubles crown this year. She won with Kendall Kozikowski in 2015 and Lauren Kozikowski in 2015. Zumwinkle and senior Lauren Kozikowski will team up again this year. Two additional teams that finished in the Top 4 in 2015 also return: seniors Kayla McIver and Kylee Funk of Foley, third; and senior Joelle Thorfinnson and ninth-grader Danielle Thorfinnson of Minnewaska Area, fourth.
Class AA – A new singles champion will emerge this year as defending champion, Haley Haakenstad of Chanhassen, graduated last spring. Junior Sophia Reddy of Edina, who placed fourth in 2015, is this year’s top seed. She will face tough competition from No. 2-seeded Isabella Lambert, a junior from Minnetonka. Lambert earned runner-up honors last year. Senior Natalie Lorentz of St. Louis Park and junior Meagan Brown of Elk River are seeded No. 3 and No. 4 this year, respectively. Brown is hoping to improve on last year’s third-place showing. The two finalists in the 2015 consolation bracket also return this year; junior Samantha Nichols of Eagan finished in fifth place and senior Ginger Valentine of Delano followed in sixth.
Senior Taylor Tarrolly and junior Katelyn Tarrolly of St. Cloud Tech are the highest returning duo in the doubles competition. They’re looking to improve on last year’s runner-up showing. Senior Maggie Rierman and junior Grace Rierman of Mahtomedi, who placed third, and senior Mackenzie Schurhamer and ninth-grader Delaney Schurhamer of Woodbury, who placed fourth, also return to this year’s field.

The Eagles of Rochester Lourdes bounced back to win third-place honors after posting a 4-3 victory over St. James. Virginia beat Foley 5-2 in the consolation final.
Top-seeded Libby Rickeman of The Blake School defeated teammate Arlina Shen, the No. 2 seed, 6-1, 6-0 to win her first individual crown. The doubles final was a battle between teammates and sisters from Breck School of Golden Valley. When the dust settled, Grace Zumwinkle and Lauren Kozikowski walked away with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Anna Zumwinkle and Kendall Kozikowski. It was the second consecutive doubles title for Grace Zumwinkle; she won with Kendall Kozikowski in 2014.
