On Wednesday afternoon, the Bears hosted Northfield Mount Hermon on a beautiful warm spring day.
Kicking off with doubles, the Bears took the lead 2-1. Across the board, NMH's consistent team challenged the Bears to be patient and play smarter to win the point. Number 1 singles was an exciting match to watch. Michaelann Denton took control of the ball, moving her opponent across and off the court. The Bears singles remained focus and controlled to close out quick wins: Krisse Niemi (#2), Allie Brazo (#3) and Chase Gerber (#4). After a few close games and tough points, Karo Niemi (#5) also secured her W. The biggest match of the day was Hadley Laskowski at #6 singles, winning her first Varsity singles match of the season in a 3rd set tiebreaker (10-6), And for exhibition singles, Karolin Kreke won 8-3.
