Among the highlights for the Bruins was defending Sac-Joaquin Section champion Sophia Christen cruising to a 6-1, 6-0 victory using a devastating combination of groundstrokes and her amazing serve and volley game to secure the win.

Bear River No. 2 girls singles player, Lexi Lee Paunovic used her powerful all-around game to secure an easy win 6-0, 6-0 for her first victory as a Bruin.

Rounding out the good news for the Bruins were both girls doubles teams getting straight set wins for their team.
