Rock Bridge tennis team sweeps away distractions

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 | 9:49 p.m. CDT

 COLUMBIA — The Rock Bridge tennis team had a lot of distractions during its match against Jefferson City on Tuesday at Bethel Park, but the Bruins didn’t let that take away from their game.

“You just have to be in the zone,” senior Abby Kayser said.

The Bruins swept the Jays 9-0 to improve their record to 8-1.

The Bruins not only had to deal with a large group of about 25 Jays fans, a loud paraglider flying overhead, the excitement of a Bruins freshman Allison Baker's birthday celebration, and having their best player, senior Kelsey Kinderknecht sit out for doubles because of a stress fracture and a cold.

“It was hard sitting out because I wanted to be out there on the court for sure,” Kinderknecht said.

The Bruins play next against Shawnee Mission (Kan.) East at 4 p.m. Friday in Liberty.
