After nearly a year to mull over a 2011 season-ending 5-4 loss to Mingus' Marauders, the Bradshaw Mountain tennis Bears were vindicated Friday with a 5-4 win at home - on the strength of the bottom of the order.

BMHS coach Joe Borzello said the meet was tied 4-4 with No. 4 singles player Kyle Jewell left on the court.

"After he won, the team went out and carried him off the court," Borzello said. "I thought that was cool."

Bradshaw's other four wins came from the No. 2 doubles pair of William Waidelich and Max Miller, 8-1; No. 3 doubles John Brewer and Kyle Jewell, 8-2; and singles No. 4-6, respectively: Kyle Jewell, 7-6, 6-2; John Brewer, 6-3, 6-1; and Kyle Jarpe, 6-0, 6-2.

The No. 1 doubles team of Chris Rutherford and Austin Powell lost 8-0.

The three top singles players each had "great, great matches," according to their coach. Rutherford lost his No. 1 singles in straight, but hard-fought, sets, 6-3 6-4, while No. 2 Miller won his first set 7-5, lost the second 7-6, and finally lost the tiebreaker 12-10.

No. 3 Waidelich also split the first sets, but he lost the first 6-2, came back to take the second 6-3, then dropped the third set tiebreaker 13-11.

The win came on the heels of a 9-0 drubbing of The Orme School the previous day, when the Bears barely dropped a game, winning all matches in straight sets.

Coach Borzello said this week during spring break the team will conduct tennis clinics for younger players and practice three to four hours each day to prepare to play archrival Prescott twice next week. Bradshaw hosts on March 20 and travels to Prescott on March 23.
