Brothers Anshul and Aashish Bharath completed their second straight 4-0 run through the Section 3AA doubles tournament by defeating East Ridge's Evan Fridinger and Nitin Venkatesh in the finals 6-0, 6-2 on May 30 at LifeTime Fitness in Lakeville.

Anshul stands at 19-3 and Aashish has a record of 20-2 heading into their first-round state match against Wayzata on Thursday, June 8, at Baseline Tennis Center.

After qualifying just two doubles teams for state in the program's first 53 years, Rosemount tennis has sent the Bharath brothers to state two years in a row. They finished 2-2 at state last spring.
