A 'great day': Bemidji tops St. Cloud Apollo, upsets Brainerd to advance to section semifinals


BRAINERD -- Talk about drama. The Bemidji tennis team had its fill in Tuesday's Section 8AA team tennis tournament at Brainerd.

The third-seeded Lumberjacks rallied from a 2-3 deficit to top second-seeded Brainerd 4-3. The Jacks won their final two matches, including two marathon three-set contests, to get into next weekend's sectional semifinals. They'll play top-seeded Becker next Tuesday in Sartell.
