Boys Tennis Team Loses To Winchester, 1-4

With clear skies and temperatures in the upper 60s, Tuesday morning was a great time for tennis. The W.H.S. Boys tennis team, with only minimum 7 players present, faced off against Winchester, a team that is going for its third straight state championship. The Warriors have been used to losing to the Sachems by a score of 0-5 over the past few years, but they did manage to steal one event away from the top team in the Middlesex league. That event came at first doubles as sophomores Steve Parad and Dan Liberfarb defeated their opponents in a tie breaker after winning the first set and losing the second. The final result was 7-5, 1-6, 10-8. The other matches didn't go as swimmingly. Myself (Glen Maganzini), playing my first ever game at first singles, fought hard, but lost 2-6, 2-6. Rex Lam, making his singles debut at second, was able to salvage one game as he lost 1-6, 0-6. Another singles debut came at third as junior Derek Krevat, a first year player, fought competitively, but couldn't get a game as he lost 0-6, 0-6. The other doubles featured two players making their varsity debuts. Brian Li and Ryan Suh, two sophomores, proved to be a pretty good duo as they won one game, 0-6, 1-6. With a couple veterans back in action tomorow, the Warriors can only hope to win the entire match against lowly Watertown.
