On an amazing summer-like Saturday, the Bears traveled to The Gunnery for their 8th match of the season. All the players held court at once, three doubles teams on a typical hard court surface and our four singles’ players on Har-Tru courts.
The Niemi sisters demonstrated their dynamic footwork and solid groundstrokes to close out each of their singles matches with a Win. At #4 singles, Hadley Laskowski brought home another win for the Bears. Through thoughtful strategies and careful ball placement, our doubles closed out all three matches with Ws. The long-standing doubles team of Chase Gerber & Allie Brazo continued their winning streak, building their season record to 3-1. Michaelann Denton faced Izzy Bagi, Gunnery’s #1 player and a powerful athlete. Evenly matched on the court, the girls each demonstrated their strengths and battled to a first set tiebreaker before Denton rallied to win the tiebreaker and carried that energy to win the second set 6-2. Charlotte Weil, competing in exhibiition singles, won 6-0, 6-.
