BUCHANAN — The Brandywine tennis team locked up the regular season Lakeland Conference championship with a 7-1 win over host Buchanan Wednesday.
The Bobcats swept the doubles flights, which included a Bucks’ forfeit.
Brandywine won three out of the four singles flights to claim the title.
“I was real happy we came out and took care of business today,” Brandywine coach David Sidenbender said. “This puts us in a great position heading into next week’s conference tourney. We have our fate in our own hands.
“Third doubles really came through with a tough three-set match. They showed a lot of guts today. I was also real proud of one doubles today. They really showed what they can do. As long as we come out and play the best we can play next week, I will be happy with the outcome.”
