Petersen/Warsinske (BS) 8-6 Order of finish: 1, 3, 2) One year ago, the Bears traveled to Loomis Chaffee, dropped the doubles point and pulled a rabbit out of the hat to win four singles matches and ultimately the overall match too. Yesterday, in almost identical fashion, the Bears dropped the doubles point. The three teams from LC used stronger serving and superior net play to win at all three positions. Petersen/Warsinske dropped the first five games, but rallied to make it close at the finish. Wilson/Webb, playing sharp and creative doubles, were overpowered by the senior tandem from LC. Bolye/van der Lee could not establish any net presence and fell to a crafty and savy duo too. And again, it looked like the Bears, winning in four of the first sets in the singles portions would be able to duplicate last year’s win. Noah Wilson (’15), playing one of the top five singles players in New England, battled well against the four-year letter winner of LC. PJ Webb (’15), last year’s hero, used chip, charge, lobs and steady play to earn the Bears first point. Jesse Lee (’16), improved his energy after the doubles portion, played smarter, more aggressive singles and survived in a close second set. Mikey Petersen (’17) was unable to get his usual powerful groundstrokes to fall in and fell in two close sets. Tanner Boyle (’17) evened the match at three a piece by playing a beautiful game; blending patience, slice with clean groundstroke winners. And it came down Quentin van der Lee (’16) at the number four singles position. Just like last year, the Bears took the opening set. And again the LC opponent squeaked out the second set. But the momentum swung the wrong way for the Bears and Quentin, playing so well, couldn’t find the final recipe to secure the win. Even in the loss, Coach Bjurlin saw the potential this team has. With more work, these close matches will go the Bears’ way! Final score: Berkshire 3 – LC 4.
