The Bradshaw Mountain girls' and boys' tennis teams each blanked Copper Canyon, 9-0, in Glendale this past Tuesday.

With two regular season matches left to play, the Lady Bears' record of 7-4 includes double losses to Div. II's No. 1 seed Prescott and Div. I No. 9 Kingman. They hold the No. 14 spot in Div. II, and head coach Joe Borzello predicts the Lady Bears will end up at No. 11. The top 16 teams qualify for state competition.

"We will qualify for state and the girls haven't done that for a few years," Borzello said. "Our girls are amazing. What they've learned and accomplished in one season - wow, I can't believe what they've done! They've put their heart and soul into it."

The Bears remain undefeated, 12-0, with one match to go, and stand at No. 4 in D-II.

"They should be No. 3 when all is said and done," Borzello said. "From the beginning of the season I thought we'd be up in the top five."

Conceding no singles match games to the Lady Aztecs, 6-0, 6-0, this past Tuesday were Bradshaw's Nos. 1, 3, 5 and 6 players: Delaina Harris, Cassidy Ball, Athena Bowman and Cassandra Beswick, respectively. Alyssa Turner at No. 4 nearly joined them, winning 6-0, 6-1, while No. 2 Sarah Peakman completed a 6-1, 6-4 sweep.

All three doubles duos - Harris Bowman at No. 1, Ball and Beswick at No. 2, and No. 3 Peakman and Turner - dominated 8-0.

The Aztecs gave the Bears a bit more of a battle. Scores were: No. 1 Max Miller, 6-2, 6-3; No. 2 William Waidelich, 6-0, 6-1; No. 3 Kyle Jewell 6-0, 6-0; No. 4 Austin Powell, 6-0, 6-1; No. 5 Hunter Powell, 6-2, 6-0; and the No. 1 junior varsity player who moved up to No. 6, Macklin Walters, 6-1, 6-0.

Miller and Waidelich won their doubles match 8-1; while the teams of Jewell and Austin Powell, and Hunter Powell and Joey Cilano shut out their opponents, 8-0.

Bradshaw's girls played host to Mingus yesterday, after the Tribune's press time.

Both squads close regular season play today, as the Bears travel to Sedona, and Sedona's Lady Scorpions come to Prescott Valley.

The first two rounds of state individual competition take place this Friday, April 19, for both girls and boys. In the past, a squad was allowed to send one singles player and one doubles team. This year, because of their rankings, Bradshaw is allowed to send either a second singles player or doubles team to the Scottsdale Ranch Park and Tennis Center. Quarterfinals and finals take place April 20 and 26 at the Paseo Racquet Center.

Hunter Powell will represent the Bears in singles. Doubles teams are Miller and Waidelich, with a No. 8 seed, and Jewell and Austin Powell.

For the Lady Bears, Alyssa Turner will play against the No. 1 seed. In doubles Harris and Bowman are the No. 5 seed. Ball and Beswick also will play doubles.

The first two state team matches are April 23 and 30. The top 4-seeded teams host the first two rounds, so the Bears will have home court advantage to start, Borzello said.
