After opening the season with defeats at the hands of Virginia, Brainerd and Delano the Lumberjacks have posted six straight victories.

"It was nice to get the win," said BHS coach Mark Fodness. "We did what we expected to do. I was especially pleased with the singles lineup. The girls were ready to go."

Neither team, however, was especially sharp at the start of Thursday's matches, according to Fodness.

"Because of this week's weather, nobody's been on the court for two days so it took everybody a while to get going," Fodness said. "The first sets were not very smooth for anybody but the play picked up on both sides in the second sets."

Jess Solberg, Amy Frosaker, Claudia Bellew and MacKenzie Schultz all won their singles matches and each dropped only one game on way to her victory.

At first doubles Emma Nielsen and Katie Ditmanson posted a 6-4, 6-1 triumph and Claire Baumgartner teamed with Jenna Lee for a 6-1, 7-5 triumph at third doubles.

Bemidji's second doubles tandem of Olivia Dickinson and Alexis Konecne dropped a 3-6, 6-4, (10-8) decision.

Bemidji returns to the home court Monday when it hosts Detroit Lakes at noon and Crookston at 3 p.m. Those matches were rescheduled after being postponed on Tuesday.
