Blake, with nine players remaining from its 2011 state championship team, left no doubt about who was the class of the smaller class.

The Bears swept three consecutive opponents, the last being a 7-0 drubbing of Annandale in the championship match, to reaffirm its status.

"I think winning 7-0 in all three matches proves that we were no fluke last year," said senior captain Maddy Hall. "We played our game through the entire tournament. I think we're just as good as Edina."

Even an electrical outage at the Reed-Sweatt Tennis Center, which delayed to finals for 50 minutes, had no effect.

Said Hall: "We had another team meeting after that. Our coach, Jeanette [Vickman], made us focus on things we could control."
