The Bridgton Academy tennis team traveled to Hebron on a sunny but cold and blustery April day to face the Hebron Lumberjacks in a MAISAD match. Playing solid tennis up and down the lineup, the Wolverines moved to 1-2 on the season with a 5-0 victory.
The match was not as lopsided as the final score appeared, as three matches went to a third set and a fourth featured a tiebreaker. Featuring a shuffled line-up, #1 singles player Nick Thieme outlasted a game AJ Bloomingdale, 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 in a well-played match. At #2 singles, Rob Lundberg rode his big serve and some strong groundstrokes to beat Inigo Nieves, 6-2, 7-6, while Nick Osgood enjoyed the shortest match of the day, dispatching Hebron’s Dan Kim, 6-4, 6-2.
The doubles matches provided some good entertainment, as the #1 team of Matt Hill and Dave Martin, pairing for the first time, stretched to defeat Brett Bisesti and Tom Pagnozzi, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3. At #2 doubles, Sam Davis and Julian McClain earned a 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 win to close out the match.
The Wolverines will look to even its record on Tuesday afternoon with its first home match, against Fryeburg Academy, at 3:30.
