BEMIDJI — No. 3 doubles team Avery Anakkala and Claire Erdal were the deciding match for the Brainerd Warriors in their 4-3 win over Bemidji Tuesday, Sept. 29.

Anakkala-Erdal won in three sets 6-4, 4-6, 7-6(4) as the Warriors improved to 15-2.

Lindsy Busch-Ericah Folden won at No. 2 doubles for the Warriors 6-3, 6-1 while Catherine Moraghan and Lacy Busch each won at singles for Brainerd.

Bemidji handed the Brainerd Warriors their only loss last season in the Section 8-2A team championship.

Brainerd’s Tuesday, Sept. 28, match with Rocori was canceled because of COVID-19 issues at Rocori. That was the final conference match on Brainerd’s schedule. With a 7-0 conference record, the Warriors clinched the conference championship or at least a share of the title. Both Brainerd and the St. Cloud Crush finished with 12 conference points despite Brainerd defeating St. Cloud twice during the regular season.
