Tennis – Boys Varsity vs Hamden Hall Country Day School – Away
V Boys Tennis
On Wednesday, May 12th we traveled to Hamden Hall for a rematch of our extremely competitive match from a few weeks before.
It was sure to be a closely contested match, as in the previous match three of the six matches went to 3rd set super-tiebreakers and the doubles point was earned after splitting two of the doubles matches and winning the 3rd. As predicted, this match was almost identical. Once again, three of the six singles matches were determined by a third set super-tiebreaker, and the doubles point was earned after winning a third doubles match after splitting the other two. And once again, KO was able to win all three of the tiebreakers to win the match 7-0, even though the final score was deceptive because the match was MUCH closer than that. Seniors Jacob Schwwartz and Jaden Weinstein won at #1 and #2 respectively in straight sets, and junior Koby Braunstein earned a victory in a well played super-tiebreaker 10-8. The #4 and # 6 matches also went to tiebreakers, with Senior Ethan Raisner and 7th grader Ciaran Concepcion scratching out wins. Lastly, senior Wil Elliot made his singles debut at #6 and won in straight sets. The team showed good mental toughness in winning all of these close matches!
