Club/Team News


Congratulations to the Varsity Boy’s Tennis Team who were able to take down Shepard to start off their Conference Record at 1-0!  1st doubles  Matt and Patrick stood their ground and even though struggled a bit in the 2nd set still managed to win in straight sets.  Our  2nd doubles team of Aki and Viraj kept up their winning streak and handled the “Astro’s” without batting an eye, beating them in straight sets as well. Adam and Wadah of 3rd doubles brushed that dirt off their shoulders to come through with an easy victory to give the team its overall win.

Good luck to the boys as they take on their 2nd Conference Match of the year with Eisenhower today at home!
