BERRIEN SPRINGS HIGH SCHOOL: 4
We were able to grind out a 4-4 tie yesterday against a much-improved Berrien Springs team. A grind it was, right to the very end! That was about as close as a high school tennis match can get. Marcus, managing both his game & his emotions well, dropped a well-played, highly competitive 12-14 3rd set tie breaker in his match at 3S. At that point all focus shifted to the 2D court who was in the middle of a 3rd set tie breaker themselves. Down 3-4 as a team and at that very moment down 9-6 (in a 10 point tie-breaker) and 3 match points, Luke & Jude found a way to reel off 5 straight points to earn a 4-4 tie for the team. Crazy, exciting finish!
