Bryan upsets Northview
August 20, 2013Bryan High School
The Bryan Girls Tennis Team met their greatest test of the season and passed. For only the second time in school history, the Lady Bears defeated Northview in a grueling 4 hour match that featured all three singles matches going into third sets.
At doubles, Bryan and Northview split matches as Northview won at first doubles. Bryan's second doubles tandem of Trista Savage and Kendra Wheeler remained undefeated on the season by winning in straight sets over their opponent 6-3, 6-0.
Bryan's first singles Linda McDonagh played her best match of the season in securing a 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 win. At second singles, it was another marathon as Northview nipped Bryan 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-4. That tied the score at 2-2.
The last match of the night featured Bryan's Megan Steel at third singles, and with the match on the line, she secured the upset victory for the Lady Bears with a gutsy 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 win.
At JV, Elizabeth Hoene, Elizabeth Huard, Morgan Bauer, and Faith Stambaugh were all winners.
