Today, EHT lost in the playoffs to Lenape, making this the final match of the season. Despite the loss, the day was still a success as the boys played very impressive matches, not letting Lenape get an easy win! The highlight of the day was third singles, Vincent Zheng playing a two-hour match, splitting sets with his opponent, and going into a very close 10 point tiebreaker that eventually ended 10-12. Another standout match of the day was second doubles, Ari Haubois and John Liberi who lost their first set 0-6, but then had an amazing comeback in the second set 5-7! Congratulations to all of the boys on a great season and thank you to everyone who came out and supported Boys Tennis this season!
