Sah & Abrahamsen Qualify for Counties

May 10, 2011

Abrahamsen practices earlier in the season

On Saturday the #1 doubles team from our boys tennis squad, Anuraag Sah and Tyler Abrahamsen, entered the Division Championships in the hopes of qualifying for the County Tournament.  Facing the best competition from Leagues VII and VIII, the tandem sliced their way through teams representing schools that would dwarf Stony Brook.

In the opening round the duo felled Ward Melville 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, then, against Bayport-Blue Point in the 2nd round, the boys fared even better, dismissing the Phantom duo 6-4, 6-3.  In the quarterfinals Sah and Abrahamsen met the #1 doubles team from Ward Melville.  Facing the top talent from a school nearly 9 times our population, the boys fought back from an early deficit to defeat the Patriots’ top partners 3-6, 6-1, 6-3.  In the semifinal round the boys faced the most difficult team in the tournament and the top-ranked team in Suffolk County, Sachem East, and there was little shame in falling to the best of the best 1-6, 0-6.

By tearing through the first 3 rounds of the tournament the boys earned a 3rd place finish and a berth in the County Tournament, giving them an All-County nod as well.  It is Sah’s 2nd trip to Counties as he qualified in 2009 with doubles partner David Lee, making it to the semifinal round before bowing out.  Time will tell if the dynamic duo of Sah and Abrahamsen has more in store.
