BHS girls tennis: New lineups yield two wins
The Bemidji girls tennis coaches experimented with the lineup Tuesday and the changes proved to be successful as the Lumberjacks swept Detroit Lakes 7-0 and defeated East Grand Forks 5-2 at Detroit Lakes.
Only a handful of the varsity regulars played in their normal spots but the newcomers inserted into the lineup proved that they can handle varsity assignments.
In the sweep over Detroit Lakes Amy Frosaker moved up to first singles and posted a 6-1, 6-4 win. Claudia Bellew handled the second-singles duties and also coasted 6-3, 6-1.
Lauren Lund and Alexis Konecne were moved into varsity singles play at third and fourth and each prevailed in straight sets.
BHS also won all three doubles matches. Emma Nielsen and Katie Ditmanson teamed for a 6-1, 6-4 win at first, Claire Baumgartner and Annika Johnson won 6-2, 6-0 at second and Jenna Lee combined with Olivia Dickinson for a 6-1, 6-1 victory at third.
In the win over East Grand Forks the Jacks swept the singles.
Jess Solberg returned to her customary first singles position and breezed to a 6-0, 6-1 triumph. Bellew won 6-0, 6-3 at second, Francesca Huerd was a 6-4, 7-6 (10-8) victor at third and Danika Huerd posted a 6-2, 6-4 triumph at fourth.
The Lumberjacks also won at second doubles where Kenzie Schultz and Konecne teamed for a 6-0, 6-2 victory.
Baumgartner and Johnson dropped a 6-4, 6-1 first-doubles decision and Erin Edlund and Megan Serratore fell 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), (10-8) at third.
The wins upped Bemidji's dual record to 4-3. Thursday it hosts Thief River Falls at 4 p.m.
