Through the winning streak Bemidji's singles lineup has been dominant. On Monday the Jacks swept the singles play, losing only 10 games in the four matches against Detroit Lakes and a mere three in the four matches against Crookston.

"Our singles played two very strong matches," said BHS coach Mark Fodness whose team improved to 10-3. "Up and down the ladder we played very well."

Handling the singles duties were Jess Solberg at first, Amy Frosaker at second, Claudia Bellew at third and MacKenzie Schultz at fourth.

Solberg lost only three games to her Detroit Lakes foe and swept Bailey Morris of Crookston 6-0, 6-0.

Frosaker also made quick work of her two opponents, winning 6-1, 6-2 against Detroit Lakes and 6-1, 6-1 against Crookston.

Bellew was a 6-1, 6-1 victor in the Detroit Lakes match and blanked Amber Trostad of Crookston 6-0, 6-0.

Completing the dominance was Schultz who won 6-1, 6-1 and 6-1, 6-0.

Also posting a pair of victories was the first doubles tandem of Emma Nielsen and Katie Ditmanson. The duo coasted to a 6-0, 6-2 win against the Lakers and won 6-2, 6-3 over their Crookston foes.

Claire Baumgartner and Alexis Konecne also went 2-0 on the day and split their time between second doubles and third doubles.

They represented the Jacks at second doubles against Detroit Lakes and breezed to a 6-1, 6-2 triumph. Against Crookston Baumgartner and Konecne played third doubles and outlasted their opponents 5-7, 6-2, (10-5).

Also winning against Detroit Lakes were Olivia Dickinson and Jenna Lee who posted a 6-1, 6-0 victory at third doubles.

Francesca Huerd and Annika Johnson formed the second doubles team in the Crookston match and they were defeated 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (7-5), 10-5.

"Both the second and third double matches against Crookston could have gone either way," Fodness said. "As it turned out, we won at third and lost at second.

"We are pleased with where we are at and the direction we are headed," the coach continued. "Overall we are playing much better than we did early in the year but we will have to play even better two weeks from now when the section playoffs begin."

Bemidji returns to action Wednesday when it heads to Grand Rapids.
