The Bradshaw Mountain tennis teams took to travel this past week with mixed results, including some positives for players who moved up the ladder.

GIRLS

Tuesday, a trip to Kingman was unproductive for the Lady Bears, with a 7-2 loss. Athena Bowman, playing No. 4, recorded the only singles win, 7-5, 6-0, and the No. 2 doubles team of Cassandra Beswick and Cassidy Bell earned the other victory, 8-5.

"We just didn't play our best. I guess the kids were a little nervous," Bradshaw coach Joe Borzello said.

Saturday, the ladies' extremely early wakeup call to depart for the Page doubleheader at 4:30 a.m. didn't faze them, as they beat the Sand Devils 7-2 in both matches.

Delaina Harris won 6-2, 6-2 at No. 1; Sarah Peakman "played a really good match" at No. 2 but lost 6-2, 6-3. Alyssa Turner came back from a slow start to win the No. 3 match 6-3, 6-1, in what the coach called a "fantastic match."

"She never gave up," Borzello said.

Bowman lost 6-0, 6-4 at No. 4; but wins came from No. 5 Cassidy Ball, 6-1, 6-4; and Cassandra Beswick 6-3, 6-0.

Recording doubles wins in both of the day's matches were: Harris and Bowman, 8-2; Ball/Beswick, 8-3; and Turner/Peakman, 8-1.

In the second set of singles matches, Harris won 6-2, 6-2; Peakman lost 6-2, 6-3; Turner won 6-3, 6-1; Bowman lost 6-0, 6-4; and Ball and Beswick each won (scores unavailable).

BOYS

The gentlemen Bears played rude host to Kingman Tuesday, downing the Bulldogs 9-0. Thursday, the Bears went over the mountain to Cottonwood Mingus for a 6-3 victory, despite competing without their usual No. 2 and 3 players, William Waidelich and Austin Powell.

In singles play, Kyle Jewell moved up to the No. 2 position and needed the first set to get set. After dropping that one 6-4, he won the second 6-4 and bounded back from the short end of an 8-5 score to emerge victorious 12-10 in the tiebreaker.

Hunter Powell won 6-4, 7-5 in the No. 3 slot, and Nos. 4 and 5 - Josh Miller and Daniel Schmuckler - each got past their Marauder counterparts 6-4, 6-4.

No. 1 Max Miller lost 6-4, 6-3. and Joey Cilano came up short after an epic battle at No. 6. Cilano dropped a close first set 7-6, won the second 6-4, and fell 11-9 in the tiebreaker.

Max Miller and Kyle Jewell teamed up for No. 1 doubles, but lost 8-5. Josh Miller and Daniel Schmuckler paired for No. 2 to win 8-1, while No. 3 Hunter Powell and Joey Cilano won 8-5.

The Bears got to sleep in while Page traveled Saturday for a doubleheader that started at 11 a.m. Bradshaw captured the first match 8-1, and the second 7-2.

Scores for Nos. 1-6 in the first match were: Max Miller, 6-3, 6-3; Waidelich, in his first loss of the year, 6-2, 6-1; Jewell, 6-0, 6-3; Austin Powell, 6-0, 6-0; Hunter Powell, 6-1, 6-2; and Schmuckler 6-4, 6-4. Doubles: No. 1 Miller/Waidelich, 8-6; Jewell/Austin Powell, 8-3; Hunter Powell and Joey Cilano, 8-2.

Second match wins went to: Miller, 7-6, 6-0; Waidelich, who revenged his loss with a 7-5, 6-1 victory; Jewell, 6-2, 6-0; Austin Powell, 6-1, 6-1; and Hunter Powell 6-2, 6-4.

Miller and Waidelich lost their first doubles match of the season, 8-4. Jewell/ Austin Powell won 8-5; and No. 3 Hunter Powell/Cilano triumphed 9-7.

Both squads traveled to Copper Canyon yesterday, after the Tribune's press time.
