With only two returning starters and two outdoor practices under their belt in the first two weeks, the Bears were excited to start the season but cautiously aware of the veteran talent Millbrook School possesses. Returners Noah Wilson (’15) and PJ Webb (’15) got out of the gates quickly and after a long second game put the pedal to the floor to swept the score at first doubles. Mikey Petersen (‘17) and Pete Warsinske (’14) used an effective game of power, touch and placement to win at third doubles. And after battling back and forth, Tanner Boyle (’17) and Quentin van der Lee (’16) used a break and hold in the ultimate two games to win at second doubles. From there, the Bears took things into their individual hands. van der Lee cruised using a recipe of a big serve and punishing approach shots. Fernandez, displaying patience and consistently, wore out his opponent and made things look easy in the second set. Petersen used superior groundstrokes and placement to run around his opponent. Wilson battled at the top position and because of smart play and being aggressive at appropriate times, won in two close sets. Webb used a savvy attack game of chip, charge, volley and placement and dispatched his opponent. Boyle, who led in both sets, had his opponent on the ropes. Coach Bjurlin is confident Boyle is going to be on the winning side of many more matches to come. All in all, the conditions were challenging, but the Bears did what was needed in this first match. Final score: 6-1.
