Marquee Match: In one of the best matches of the day, Brainerd’s Brittany Canty edged Alex Bonner, 9-7, at No.1 singles.

 

Bonner trailed 6-2 before winning five of the next six games to pull even at 7-7. Canty then won the final two games for the victory to secure the fifth team point and the team win.

 

Brainerd also captured the No.1 singles match in boys as Bernard King III defeated Brett Kranske, but Central’s depth came through as the Purple Pounders won at Nos.2-5 in singles, plus at No. 2 doubles.
