Led by senior captains Jack Ablon and Owen Greenwood, the 2017 varsity tennis team had a stellar season after losing 4 team members from the 2016 ISL championship run. The whole team has performed at a high level throughout the entire season, particularly 3 seeded Danny Tsyvin, who is yet to drop a set in ISL play.
The team experienced some heartbreaking losses to Roxbury Latin and Brunswick, but also won some key games including an 8-7 thriller at Groton and a 14-1 rout of an undefeated Milton team.
With the final match of the season approaching rapidly, the team looked to finish the season on a high note with a match against BB&N, after recently defeating Brooks 14-1. BB&N and Belmont Hill shared 2nd place in the ISL, with each team having only one loss. BB&N was looking for revenge on their home court, after Belmont Hill defeated them to win the ISL title last year. Unfortunately for BH, the Knights bested them in the last match of season; nevertheless the squad is more fired up than ever to avenge their defeat next year.
The BB&N match was the last match in a Belmont Hill uniform for seniors Jack Ablon, Owen Greenwood, Scott Jackson, and Jack Daley, all of whom have greatly contributed to the tennis program throughout their time at Belmont Hill. Despite the departure of 4 seniors after the season, the team aspires to remain near the top of the ISL in years to come with the help of current middle schoolers: Andrew Lee, Matt Drucker, Aaron Belluck, and Jarrett Chen.
