Elk River beat section rival Chisago Lakes 6-1 at home on Thursday, probably locking up a top seed for playoffs.

The lone loss came at No. 2 doubles in a marathon that ended an hour and 15 minutes after the rest as Joe Wetherille and Nick Tran dropped a nail-biter, 6-4, 4-6, 6-7.

“Overall, the team played really well against one of the top three teams in the section,” said coach Randy Ronning.

The Elks, ranked No. 2 in Class AA, are 19-1 with one match left, against Park Center on Friday, before sectionals.
