LINTON – Bedford North Lawrence swept the singles while conquering Linton 3-2 during boys high school tennis action on Thursday.

The Stars (1-2) dropped only one game on the three singles courts. Graham Turner trounced Connor Daily 6-1, 6-0 at No.1, Nate Pemberton popped Asa Gambill 6-0, 6-0 at No.2, while Jayden Kemp swept past Questyn Hardesty 6-0, 6-0 at No.3.

“It was a nice win,” BNL coach Chris Kurtz said. “The singles spots were very good tonight. We’ve still got some growing to do with the doubles teams, but they are such hard workers, things will keep getting better.”
