In what could have been a 4-3 match either way, KO emerged with a 7-0 victory by taking all three of the singles super tiebreakers and winning the doubles point with an 8-6 win at #3 doubles (Shumayl Shiek-Syed and Will Jacobs). Perhaps the strongest performance of the day came at #1 doubles as seniors Jacob Schwartz and Jaden Weinstein got out of the gates quickly and rolled to an 8-0 win. Hamden Hall’s #2 doubles team edged the 7th grade duo of Ciaran Concepcion and Pratt Blair by a score of 8-5.
In singles play, KO earned singles wins in super tiebreakers at #1 (Jaden Weinstein), #3 (Ethan Raisner), and #4 (Pratt Blair). Raisner and Blair each battled back from dropping the first set, earning nice comeback wins.
Jacob Schwartz (#2), Ciaran Concepcion (#5), and Will Jacobs (#6) earned straight set victories to close out the scoring. Both teams played with terrific sportsmanship in a match that lasted until 7:00 p.m. We will be traveling to Hamden Hall on Wednesday, 5/5 in what will be another competitive and tight match. Prior to that match, we will travel to Westport to take on perennial power Greens Farms Academy.
