Bryan Remains Unbeaten at 10-0
August 28, 2013, Bryan -- The Bryan Girls Tennis Team put their undefeated streak on the line against 4-time defending WBL champion Celina - a team that went 36-0 in the WBL over the last 4 years - and came out on top in a thrilling 4-1 victory.
With the win, the Lady Bears advanced to the third round of the State Team Tennis Tournament and will face either Sandusky Perkins or Bellevue for a spot in the sweet sixteen.
At first doubles, the Lady Bears tandem of Jessica Wittler and Mikayla Borland squeaked out a close 6-4 first set win before asserting themselves in the second set 6-1 to give Bryan its first point of the night.
With Celina winning the second doubles match, Bryan needed to capture two of the three singles matches for the victory. With two of those matches going three sets, the match was in the balance until the last player walked off the court.
At first singles, Bryan's Linda McDonagh dropped her first set 4-6 before going on a tear in the second and third sets with back to back 6-0 scores to give Bryan its second point of the night. The Lady Bears struck again at second singles, but it took a come from behind tie-break win from Tiffany Short to pull out the first set 7-6(2). She would go on and win the second set by a score of 6-3.
Not to be outdone, Bryan's Megan Steel won a see-saw battle at third singles as she put together a 6-2, 2-6, 6-0 three-set win to give Bryan the singles sweep.
At JV, Elizabeth Hoene and Elizabeth Huard were winners.
