B Tennis 1983

The ’83 boys’ tennis squad

On this day 35 years ago, the boys’ tennis team won a fourth consecutive League Championship with a 7-0 win over Mercy.

Matt Tubbs (6-3, 6-2), Ed Lin (forfeit), Paul Bastin (forfeit), and Mike Strasberg (forfeit) swept the singles matches while Kris Chvatal and Pat Nolan (3-6, 6-2, 6-4), Jim Storey and Doug Storey (forfeit), and Chris Levy and Mike Esser (forfeit) earned doubles wins over the Monarchs.

The Shrikes went 14-3 that season, despite losing the core of the previous year’s championship team to graduation. Greg Fitzpatrick won the Conference IV singles title while the team made it to the second round of the Suffolk County tournament.
