Boys’ Tennis 2011: Season Review

June 23, 2011

The Bears

After winning last year’s League VI Championship the boys tennis squad had to move up to League V and face some of the largest opponents in Suffolk County.  It was a difficult leap for the squad that had to face the likes of Patchogue-Medford, Ward Melville and Sachem East, school’s some 10 times our size, yet several individual performances stood out.

The doubles tandem of Richie Armand and Enoch Wang earned an All-League nod while partners Anuraag Sah and Tyler Abrahamsen garnered All-County honors after their exceptional play in the Division III Championships.

At Divisions Sah and Abrahamsen felled Ward Melville 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 in the opening round, 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 they met the #1 doubles team from Ward Melville and 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.

Sah, a mainstay of the tennis squad for the last 3 seasons, will be sorely missed next spring, but the return of Abrahamsen, Armand and Wang will ensure future success on the hardcourt.

Postseason Honors

  • Anuraag Sah and Tyler Abrahamsen | All-County
