BOYS TENNIS: Lumberjacks split Sartell triangle against Sabres, Warriors – Bemidji Pioneer

SARTELL — The Bemidji High School boys’ tennis team received two more tests on Friday in the form of Sartell and Brainerd.

The Lumberjacks split the Sartell triangle, beating the host school 4-3 before falling to the Warriors by the same margin.

Aidan Larson and Brooks Johnson won both No. 2 doubles matches in straight sets. Matt Brown and Jackson Bahr also went 2-0 in No. 3 doubles.

Against Sartell, Casey Rupp defeated Zak Farley 6-3, 6-4 at No. 1 in singles. Jack McNallan and JD Hasbargen also won doubles No. 1, beating Aiden and Bailey Woods 7-5, 6-0.

Brainerd did something no team has done this year: give McNallan and Hasbargen a doubles loss. Karlton Anderson and Clark Haglin pulled off a thriller in three sets (6-4, 1-6, 6-3) to beat the Jacks’ top doubles team. Owen Lappinga won in straight sets (3-6, 6-1, 7-5) over Nick Morghan to claim Bemidji’s third point.
