Varsity Tennis Drops First Match

The varsity tennis team put themselves in a position to earn a 4-3 win against Shady Hill this week. Unfortunately, the bounces didn’t go their way and the team dropped three close matches, eventually losing 6-1. Davin Roy secured the team’s only win at first singles (6-4). Philippe Pitts dropped a tough match at second singles (5-7), while doubles teams Eli Burger and Eden Lewis (5-7), and Owen Khanna and Milly Noble (5-6) both came up just short. First-year head coach Jim Walker took plenty of positives from the afternoon despite the disappointing result and is encouraged about the rest of the season.
