Riassunto: Tennis in the Northland is a book about Minnesota's high school tennis champions, and the coaches who helped them become successful. It is a comprehensive 75-year history, beginning in the first year of state competition in 1929. Featured in the book are narrative profiles of all the singles and doubles champions; sketches of prominent Minnesota tennis families, teaching pros, patrons, and media reporters; and stories about successful teams. The book also includes stories about girls playing on boys' teams before Title IX, dark horse teams such as St. James, dynasty teams such as Edina, and many fun facts about former champions. For example, one future champion missed his streetcar and so missed the tournament his junior year. Another is one of the creators of the play ''Triple Espresso.'' Another had a tennis scorebook named after him, and still another was the lead prosecutor at the Charles Manson trial (and author of the book Helter Skelter).
L'autore: A baseball and basketball player at Sherburn High School and Augsburg College, Jim Holden was, like so many high school tennis coaches in the 1960s and '70s, an unlikely candidate for a tennis caching job. Nonetheless, without any real playing experience or knowledge of the game, he reluctantly agreed to become the Northfield High School boys' coach in 1971. Despite some relatively lean early years, under Holden's guidance the Raiders made five state tournament appearances - finishing as high as third in 1978. In addition, he coached 1976 doubles champions Andy Ringlien and Tim Ross and fourteen individual state tournament entrants (nine in doubles and five in singles). And during a seventeen year tenure his teams won 237 matches and lost just 82.
