The tennis team, perennially at or near the top of the MIAA Division 3 state bracket, is ranked second and will begin the playoffs at 3:30 p.m. on Friday against Falmouth High School. The match is at the Wedgewood Club, 85 Page Rd. because of resurfacing on the BHS courts.

The softball team will host Woburn Memorial High in the MIAA Division 2 opening round at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Coach Dennis Walsh’s young team finished the regular season with a record of 16-4 and the seventh seed in the tournament.

The girls’ lacrosse team, two years after reaching the Division 3 finals, has returned to prominence with an eighth seed. The game is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Monday at Sabourin Field, and the opponent will be the winner of a play-in game between Dighton-Rehoboth High School and Tri-County Regional Vocational-Technical High School of Franklin.

John Geilfuss is completing his 29th season as BHS boys’ tennis coach with a resume that includes two state championships.

“The kids have a very positive energy this year. They’re very excited,” the coach said.

Bedford’s first singles, junior Dillon Denny-Brown, competed into the round of 16 in the recent U.S. Tennis Association individual state tournament.

“He has been playing really well – one of the best players in the conference,” Geilfuss said.

The team’s only senior, Jeremy Gu, plays second singles, with sophomore Rylan Nichols in third single. The first doubles tandem of Spencer Goss and Logan Cox, like Denny-Brown and Gu, were Dual County League all-stars.  The second doubles pair for Bedford are Leo Natalizio and Charles Demeo.

The DCL is the pinnacle of boys’ tennis in the state as evidenced by this year’s seedings. Besides Bedford, Weston is first in Division 3, Wayland fourth in Division 2, and Concord-Carlisle second in Division 1. Two other DCL teams, Acton-Boxborough and Westford, are in the top 10 of Division 1.

The girls’ tennis team also qualified for the post-season, but lost at Scituate High School on Wednesday.
