The Bears surrendered their home court advantage and traveled to Lakeville on Saturday to plays Hotchkiss. The Bearcats, a “Class A” perennial powerhouse, provided the Bears with their first real measuring stick of the year. And what might have been… Even though the Bears got muscled out of the doubles point rather quickly, the singles portion provided an opportunity for many of our young players to dig in and take stock in their own personal game. Highlights from the afternoon included: Quentin van der Lee (’16), playing the most complete match of his young career, knocking off the very tough Hotchkiss opponent. Yanno Fernandez (’16), battling back in the second set by making aggressive decisions and strong moves, earned two match points against his opponent. Noah Wilson (’15), who led in the first, won the second and led in the third, played outstanding tennis but fell just short. These three matches could have all gone Berkshire’s way to give the Bears even more to hang their hats on…Tanner Boyle (’17), PJ Webb (’16) and Mikey Petersen (’17) all produced good tennis throughout the afternoon in their matches. We have lots to take back with us in preparation for a strong Taft team. Final score: Berkshire 1 – Hotchkiss 6.
