Thursday morning began with an inch of snow on the tennis courts, but as the temperature climbed to 50 degrees and melted most of the cold stuff, the Bradshaw Mountain Lady Bears needed to clear just the back of their courts to host Copper Canyon in the afternoon.

The Lady Aztecs probably wished the courts had remained snow-covered and the match cancelled, as Bradshaw prevailed 9-0, for the team's fourth straight win and the No. 2 power ranking in 4A-I.

In order, playing Nos. 1-6, Lady Bears and their scores were: Delaina Harris, 6-3, 6-2; Kelsey Chambers 6-2, 6-0; Naomi Nugent 6-3, 6-0; Arielle Miller 6-3, 6-1; Kaitlyn Hesketh 6-0, 6-0; and Sellena Murray 3-6, 6-2, (12-10).

Bradshaw coach Scott Terry said several of the matches were not as lopsided as the final scores indicated, but the only real nail-biter was Murray's battle at the No. 6 slot. After losing her first set, she fought to take the second and force a tiebreaker that extended past the regulation 10 points.

Winning scores for the Nos. 1-3 doubles teams were: Chambers/Nugent, 8-1; Harris/Murray, 8-2; and Hesketh/Haley Rhodes, 8-1.

The Lady Bears are on the road until March 30, when Kellis comes to Prescott Valley. 

The Bradshaw Mountain boys' tennis team is off to a 3-1 start and a No.10 power ranking in 4A-I this season.

The latest win, a 9-0 blanking of Copper Canyon in Glendale,

Playing Nos. 1-6 in order, Pat Cananea, Bob Berardi, Nick Berardi, Koyan Clark, David Terry and John Brewer each won their singles matches.

Triumphing as doubles teams were: No. 1 the Berardis; No. 2 Brewer/Donovan Tretsven; and No. 3 Chris Ruherford/Paul Bahm.

Bradshaw next hosts Prescott on March 26.
