Boys’ tennis off to a great start by Matt Pascarella

Ben White giving his all in the doubles match
The boys’ tennis team began their season with an outstanding performance at their first match of the season. They played Massabesic for their first home game this passed Tuesday, April 23.
 
The match was broken into singles and doubles. Each individual match is best of three games and the entire competition is best of five of all the matches played. 

Due to a lack of players on Massabesic’s team, they forfeited one of the doubles matches. So, Windham was up 1-0 early on.

The singles matches featured Stephen Sepulveda, Trevor Crowley and Vireak Tray. Stephen won two of the three matches he needed to win. His scores were 6-1 and 6-2. Trevor Crowley won two of his three matches with scores of 6-2 and 6-3 and Vireak Tray also won two of the three matches he needed to win, with scores of 6-0 and 6-3.

In the doubles matches, Andrew Wing partnered with Ben White and they won two of the three matches they needed to win. Their scores were 6-1 and 6-1. The other match was forfeited due to Massabesic’s lack of players.

Windham came out to win 5-0 in this match because of the three singles wins and two doubles wins.

While watching the student athletes in both the singles and the doubles matches, I noticed one thing all the Windham athletes had in common: intensity. The Eagles had speed and agility on the court showing Massebesic they were energized for the win (or wins).

The Eagle’s forceful serves and return volleys capitalized on showing their opponent they were here for the ‘W.’ Windham athletes are concentrated and determined to do their best during these matches.

“This was a great was to start off; to get a good win and hopefully we’ll keep it going,” 
commented Coach Gary Stone regarding the match.
