IOWA FALLS - Trailing by three games, Cambria Hoffmann never relented and in the end prevailed for the Webster City girls' tennis team here yesterday.
Unfortunately, the Lynx didn't have much else to celebrate.
Iowa Falls-Alden controlled singles and doubles play on its way to an 8-1 victory over Webster City in a dual meet.
Hoffmann trailed Kourtney Krumm 5-2 in the No. 2 singles match before she bounced back and took control. She went on to win 10-7.
"Cambria kept her head up and kept going, which was good to see," WCHS head coach Heather Kierzek said. "She played really well."
Kelsey Bahrenfuss took six games in her No. 4 singles match against the Cadets' Breanna Keane.

Kierzek was also pleased with her No. 2 doubles team of Bahrenfuss and Ariel Clabaugh, which claimed eight games before falling to Mary Caldwell and Sarah Emerson. Caldwell is the Cadets' No. 1 player.
"My No. 2 doubles team played really well," Kierzek said. "Mary Caldwell is a very good player, so to get anything off her is a good day. To get eight games off her doubles team is a fantastic day for our girls even though they didn't come out on top."
WCHS will head back out on the road today. The Lynx will be in Huxley for a 4:30 p.m. meet against Ballard.
