This afternoon the sixth-seeded boys’ tennis team kept their season alive with a 4-3 victory over #11 East Islip in the second round of the Suffolk County Championship.
Brandon Gicquel (7-5, 6-4), Steven Ou (6-1, 6-3), and Bradley Choi (6-1, 6-0) won their first, second, and fourth singles matches, while Islip won at second singles and first and second doubles to knot the match at 3-3.
The result came down to the third doubles match where Andy Liu and Alan Wang overpowered their opponents, 6-4, 6-2 to seal the Bears’ victory. Both Liu and Wang set the tone with vicious first serves while Liu used his height and length to devastating effect at the net.
With the win, the Bears advance to the quarterfinals tomorrow afternoon against #3 Ward Melville.
