LUMBERJACK GIRLS TENNIS
The Bemidji Lumberjack Girls Tennis Team had been dominant in its previous seven matches, winning all of them and outscoring their opponents 42-7. But the tables turned Tuesday in Brainerd with the Warriors rolling to a 6-1 win. Bemidji’s only win came at #1 singles, where junior Savannah Haugen rolled to a 6-2, 6-1 victory, improving to 7-1 on the year. The Jacks lost the remaining six matches, with only Lexi Leitner and Nettie Kimble going to a third set. The Jacks are now 7-1 on the season and will host Fergus Falls at 4:30 Thursday
LUMBERJACK BOYS SOCCER
The Lumberjack Boys Soccer team also played an unbeaten Brainerd team and the Warriors remained unbeaten, but the Jacks showed significant improvement and held the Warriors to just one goal in a 1-0 loss at Chet Anderson Stadium Tuesday night. Shots were 8-5 on net in Brainerd’s favor, but the Warriors didn’t connect until the second half, scoring in the 59th minute. Brainerd improved to 7-0-1, while Bemidji fell to 1-5-1, but Lumberjack Coach Rick Toward’s postgame comments to Micah Friesz in the Bemidji Pioneer were upbeat. Toward noted the team is playing a tougher schedule than years past and the team is playing much better than it was earlier in the year. The Jacks will hit the road Thursday, heading to Fergus Falls to battle the Otters in a 7pm game.
LUMBERJACK GIRLS SWIMMING
The Brainerd Warriors beat the Lumberjack Girls Swimmers at the Bemidji High School Pool Tuesday night by a 117-59 score.
