THURSDAY NIGHT IN BEMIDJI? CHET ANDERSON STADIUM, 7:00 KICK-OFF, SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE.>>>IT’S BEEN QUITE THE WEEK FOR LUMBERJACK ATHLETICS. FIRST BOYS AND GIRLS SOCCER, THEN FOOTBALL AND NOW ABBY KELM. THE SENIOR SINGLES PLAYER IS GEARING UP FOR HER LAST TRIP TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT IN CLASS 2A. AS A JUNIOR, KELM DROPPED HER FIRST MATCH BUT THEN RAN THE TABLE TO WIN THE CONSOLATION TITLE. THIS YEAR, A PERFECT 34-AND-0 RECORD, CRUISING THROUGH THE REGULAR SEASON AND RANKED IN THE TOP 10. IT’S HER THIRD TRIP TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT IN HER HIGH SCHOOL CAREER AND SHE’S COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT JUST STICKING WITH HER GAME.>>I THINK IF I CAN GET IN THE RHYTHM AND IT WILL BE CONSISTENCY WITH MY GROUND STROKES, BEING PATIENT AND GO FOR THE WINNERS WITH LIKE THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITY. NOT MAKING THE ERRORS. I THINK JUST BEING PATIENT IS DEFINITELY THE KEY. IT’S A LOT BETTER THAN LIKE THE FIRST YEAR BECAUSE I JUST KNOW IT’S GOING TO GO ON. I’M MORE RELAXED, KNOW THE SYSTEM.>>SHE’S PLAYED NOW IN SINGLES AND DOUBLES. SHE KNOWS WHAT TO EXPECT. YOU KNOW, THE COMPETITION IS SO GOOD. IT’S JUST TERRIFIC DOWN THERE. SO NO MATTER WHAT, YOU’RE NOT GUARANTEED SUCCESS, BUT I THINK SHE’S PROBABLY IN THE BEST POSITION SHE’S BEEN IN SINCE WE’VE BEEN GOING.>>Collin: SO KELM STARTS HER TOURNAMENT TOMORROW MORNING AT 8:00 AT THE BASELINE TENNIS CENTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA. SHE DRAWS MAPLE GROVE 8th
