GIRLS TENNIS: Lumberjacks share triangular house, end 12-win streak – Bemidji Pioneer

BEMIDJI – All good things must come to an end, so the saying goes.

Bemidji High School’s women’s tennis team lived up to that maxim during a triangulated Tuesday on the courts at BHS. The Lumberjacks extended their long winning streak to 12 games with a 6-1 win over the Detroit Lakes, but Crookston closed the streak with a 5-2 victory later in the day.

Against the Lakers, the Jacks were consistent throughout the lineup. In singles, No. 1 Emily Dondelinger led the way with a joyous 6-1, 6-0 win, and No. 2 Anna Glen added a hard-fought 4-6, 6-3, 10-4 triumph. #4 Elizabeth Peterson rounded off Bemidji’s individual success with a 6-1, 6-4 win.

The Lumberjacks also swept doubles matchups, with #1 duo Darby Neis and Maddie Jensen (6-2, 7-6 (7-5)), #2 duo Kendal Midboe and Elena Peterson (7-5, 6- 1) and No. 3 group Noelle Mueller and Sam Wood (6-1, 7-6 (7-5)) all taking victories.

BHS had less luck with the pirates, however. Dondelinger triumphed 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 and Mueller and Wood won 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 in their respective places, but Crookston otherwise paved the way for the team’s victory.

Now with 13 wins and 2 losses this season, the Jacks return to face Staples-Motley on Senior Day at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, back on the courts at BHS.
