Tennis – Boys Varsity vs Hopkins School – Home

V Boys Tennis

On Saturday, April 10th the Boys Varsity Tennis Team hosted Hopkins.

After having the previous season cancelled due to Covid-19, it was wonderful to see kids having the opportunity to play. Hopkins proved to be too tough, as their lineup is quite balanced from #1 thru #6. The defeat was not due to a lack of effort on our part, as we worked hard in every match. The bottom line is that their depth and talent were too much to overcome. Arguably the strongest performance came from our Captain Jacob Schwartz (‘21), who lost a very close three set match 4-6, 7-5, 10-4 (tiebreaker) at #2 singles. It was some of the best tennis he has played, and while the result was disappointing, the attitude and effort were tremendous. Jaden Weinstein gave it everything he had at #1 singles, which is a tall task as he fills in for the injured and talented Max-William Kanz (‘22). Most importantly, he represented KO at the top spot with class. KO also dropped matches at the #3 (Koby Braunstein “22) and  #4 (Ethan Raisner ‘21) spots against talented opponents. We have two Form 1 students (Pratt Blair ‘26,  Ciaran Concepcion ‘26) competing at #5 and #6  singles, and these young guys held their own against very talented players. I was also pleased with how senior Will Elliott (‘21) competed at #3 doubles with Ciaran Concepcion. It was also nice to see KO kids competing in exhibition singles (Will Jacobs ‘23 and Shumayl Shiek Syed “22) and freshman Amogh Peddapothia ‘24 at #4 doubles with Ethan Raisner. 

Next up is Marianopolis Prep on Saturday, April 17th at KO.
