With athletes aplenty, Salisbury often provides the Bears with a challenge on the court. But with their top two players out, the Knights were fighting an uphill battle they could not win. The Bears played very good doubles to start off the match. Boyle and van der Lee quickly dissected their opponents. Petersen and Warsinske used powerful returns and strong net play to win easily. Wilson and Webb finished off the sweep by extending the rallies and playing the big points (30/30 and 40/30) well. The singles portion did not offer up its usual tension. Quentin van der Lee (’16) marched through his opponent. Tanner Boyle (’17), PJ Webb (’15) and Jesse Lee (’16) rolled to, hardly dropping a game in either set. Mikey Petersen (’17) showed the grit Coach Bjurlin loves when he battled through an allergic reaction. Petersen looked to be breaking out in hives but managed to stay the course. Noah Wilson (’15) finished of the successful day for the Bear. Final score: Bears 7 – Salisbury 0. The Bears travel to Loomis Chaffe on Saturday, April 19, 2014.
