Bemidji HS tennis: Weaver, Holter split first matches at state

Bemidji's Sam Weaver and Ben Holter divided their first two matches at the state high school tennis meet Thursday.

They dropped their opener to Luke Bastiansen and Thiago Morsch of Minnetonka 6-0, 6-2 but came back to beat Allen Johnson and Brian Arola of Hibbing 6-3, 6-1.

They will be back on the courts at 8 this morning to meet the winner of a Rochester Mayo-Mahtomedi match. That winner plays again at 11:30 for the consolation title.

The Weaver-Holter duo is the first boys team to gain the state since Peder Engelstad and Austin Seaverson completed a three year run in 2002, going 1-2 to take fourth their final two years.
