Tennis Slams Another Season

Over the course of two and half months, the tennis team has developed into a great team. While it took a bit of time to adjust to the new scoring format and a new coach, the team persevered and achieved an incredible league record of 12 wins and 3 losses. The three losses came at the hands of very strong teams.. The Middlesex match, which ended in a 3-4 loss, lasted over four hours as each team strived to win. The Varsity Tennis team finished 4th in the ISL. In the New England’s tournament, the squad defeated Green Farms Academy in the first round, but lost to Roxbury Latin in the second. However, while the scoreline of the Roxbury Latin match looks quite devastating, the squad improved much since their first encounter, making it a close fight. Over the course of the season, the team developed double’s play especially, thanks to the aid of Coach Nick Cary. Departing from the squad next season, the team waves goodbye to three seniors: Co-captain Tommy Smith, Will Lafarge, and Thomas McEvoy. Speaking of his time on the Belmont Hill Varsity Tennis team this season, Tommy Smith states, “Over my time at Belmont Hill, I have been a member of many great teams, but the grit and determination of the varsity tennis team this year was beyond compare. I was very proud to be a member of the team and will miss it dearly.”
