Stars top Loogootee
for second road win
LOOGOOTEE – Perhaps Bedford North Lawrence should play all its matches on the road.
The Stars won for the second time in the last three matches – both of them away from their own asphalt courts – with a 4-1 triumph at Loogootee on Tuesday afternoon. BNL swept the doubles while improving to 2-7.
Taylor Turpen and Kaleb Carpenter combined for a 6-4, 6-4 win over Hayden Bell and Jordan Berry at No.1 doubles, while Jack Green and Johnny Underwood dented Caleb Dent and Wyatt Wade 6-3, 6-4 at No.2.
“They both played well.” BNL coach Donnie Thomas said. “They’re making better shots and putting the ball where it needs to go. They’re making the right shot instead of the harder shot.”
BNL’s Will Bohling, making a rare appearance in the varsity lineup because of Garrett Andrews’ illness, made it count with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Jayce Wagoner at No.3 singles. BNL’s other win came from Zach Tran at No.2 singles, 6-0, 6-4 over Tylan Norris.
