DETROIT LAKES – The Bemidji High School boys tennis doubles teams remain a force.

The BHS duos went six for six on Friday at the Detroit Lakes triangular. The Lumberjacks split the day, beating the Lakers 6-1 and then falling to Alexandria 4-3.

Against Detroit Lakes, Jack McNallan and JD Hasbargen beat Nick Buboltz and Cooper Moore at No. 1 doubles. Jackson Bahr and Matt Brown also won in straight sets at No. 2 doubles, beating Devon Berg and Reece Borgman 6-3, 6-1. Brooks Johnson and Max Louvar were perfect at No. 3 doubles over Cole Deraney and Zane Roberts.

BHS needed only one singles win to lock up a team victory. Jacob Fuhrman, Aidan Larson and Leo Mathews won at second, third and fourth singles, respectively.

The Jacks (12-4) rolled out a different lineup against Alexandria. Rupp and McNallan beat Blake Svee and Leo Kompelien 6-1, 6-0 at No. 1 doubles. Larson and Hasbargen teamed up to beat Ryker Bosek and Erik Reinke at No. 2 doubles, while Bahr and Brown rolled to a 6-2, 6-3 victory at No. 3 doubles.


The Cardinals won all four singles matches, including a three-set thriller in the fourth slot. Brett Thornberg beat Johnson 5-7, 7-5, 11-9 to clinch the team victory.

“We picked up a good win against a really athletic Detroit Lakes team, and I was really happy with how hard the boys competed against Alexandria,” BHS head coach Kyle Fodness said. “In terms of communication on the courts and making adjustments, I thought it was one of our best matches of the year in taking care of the little things well. That’s a nice thing to build on going into playoffs next week.”
