After a productive season the Bruin tennis team fell in their sectional opener to Madison-Grant 1-3. With the match outcome already decided, the 5th game of the suspended (due to rain) 2D match was not completed.
Kerigan Reynard had the lone win of the evening taking his game to 3 sets. 2D came ready to play, jumping out to an early lead over their opponents, but dropped the second set in a tiebreaker. Play was suspended during the third match at 3-3. 1S Scott Thompson started to rally pulling ahead in the second set, but couldn’t keep the upper hand losing 2-6, 4-6.
“Everyone played hard and didn’t give up tonight. Even though this isn’t how we wanted to end our season, I am so proud of all of our accomplishments. This team has had an incredible year. We wish the seniors good luck and a big thank you to each for their contributions and dedication to this program,” mentioned Coach Thompson after the match.
