Boys’ Varsity 5/18 Salisbury Win 6-0 KO capped its season with a 6-0 victory on Wednesday afternoon. Due to the late starting time, both teams agreed to play singles first and forego the doubles if the match was determined after singles.

Max-William Kanz ’22 won in straight sets at #1, Teddy Keegan ’22 won in a third set super tiebreaker (11-9), and Koby Braunstein ’22 played quite well in a straight-sets win at #3. Sean Gilland ‘22 played well at #6 singles in a hard-fought straight-sets win.

JV Girls' 5/21 Pomfret Loss 1-5 KO played their final match of the season on Saturday. Under a blazing sun, the team faced a generally well-matched opponent in the form of the Pomfret squad. Due to injuries, two players played in both singles and doubles; Keysy Lopez-Diaz ’24 and Anna Ollenschleger ’25 should be commended for their willingness to help the team and their grit to play hard in both matches, especially in the unusually high heat. Saanve Bathula ’24 and Keysy Lopez-Diaz ’24 came away with a doubles win, 6-3, while Francesa Lamattina ‘25 played a tight match, losing 4-6. Despite the heat, the team had fun and smiled throughout the match, in classic JV Girls' Tennis style.
