BEDFORD – Senior Day doubled as Preview Day as Bedford North Lawrence finished the regular season with a victory over Edgewood.
The Stars honored their three seniors, sending Cade Provo, Wyatt Scherschel and Dennis Moore off with a 5-0 sweep of the Mustangs on Monday afternoon. BNL also learned its sectional fate and will face a rematch with Edgewood in the opening round on Wednesday.
BNL (12-10) duplicated an earlier victory over the Mustangs just 16 days ago.
Provo pounced on Lincoln Hammond 6-3, 6-1 at No.1 singles, Scherschel teamed with Cameron Gratzer for a 6-1, 6-1 conquest of Nicholas McBride and Zeke Weisner at No.1 doubles, and Moore made the most of his first start while combining with Konley Woodward for a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Hayden Wilson and Chris Bitner at No.2 doubles.
“It’s always good to get all the seniors in there and win,” BNL coach Donnie Thomas said. “All the seniors looked really good.”
Steven Graham, switched to singles for only the second time this season, conquered Gavin Hinson 6-0, 6-2 at No.3, and Adam Tlustek topped Josiah Hinson 6-1, 6-4 at No.2.
The Stars will seek their third win over the Mustangs in the sectional opener at Bloomington North.
“It’s a good draw,” Thomas said. “We’re playing really well.”
The BNL-Edgewood winner will face North in the semifinal on Thursday.
