GREELEY 7, FOX LANE 0

This match began on Monday, with threatening skies, gusting winds, and the ever-so-slight hint of a shower. Mostly clad in warm-ups, the boys began and the drama unfolded.

First off the court was Rex Glickman, who made his match against a top player look easy. He was quickly followed by Kevin Socolow and Ben Fortier, who played together like a well-oiled machine.

Harry Hall and Justin Simpson were neck and neck with their opponents in the first set, and prevailed in a first set tiebreak. The second set was smooth sailing and they gave the team the third win.

Then the rain got serious and play had to be halted. “To be Continued”…and it was scheduled for today.

The highpoint of the match was the fabulous Wei brothers. Each had to pick up their singles matches mid-game. Jeremy was down a set, and serving to win the second. James had won the first set, but was down in the second. Two brothers…both had to play third set tie breaks to win. Side by side on the courts, both brothers showed focus, finesse, power and inimitable strategy to overcome their opponents and both came through with wins for the team.

Congratulations to everyone who played today and Monday.

GREELEY 6, BRIARCLIFF 1

Playing for the first time in Conference III, Briarcliff was not prepared for the force of the Quakers. The boys defeated their opponents on all but one court, and most courts were won by a wide margin.

Making their varsity debut today were Jake Klein and Ben Ornstein in third doubles, and Prakyat Pola and Henry Buckley in fourth. Jake and Ben played accurate, athletic tennis which showcased Jake’s speed, and Ben’s put-away volleys. Jake’s serve and Ben’s whipping forehands down the line earned many free points for this team.

Prakyat put his opponents on the defensive from the start with his skidding and spinning serve. Henry covered all corners of the court if their opponents managed to return the ball. Both players were consistent, and waited for the Bears to make the majority of the errors.
