MONROE - The Cheesemakers Doubles tennis tournament may have served as a double edged sword for some doubles teams. The conference records and head-to-head records are critical in seeding the Badger Conference tournament May 22-23 at the University of Wisconsin's Nielsen Tennis Stadium. "For singles players, it doesn't mean a lot to them, but they can win and help the team," Monroe coach Jim Bartholf said. "This is important for the doubles players because this is added into their record. There is more pressure on the doubles teams." No matter what the motivation was for playing in the Cheesemakers Doubles tournament, the Monroe boys tennis team slammed its way to success by capturing the championship after winning doubles titles at four of the five flights to defeat McFarland, 25-17.
