The Concord Carlisle High School varsity men’s tennis crew secured the D2 State title in the wake of crushing Duxbury in a 3-2 match.
The group performed well paving the way to the last match with some serious matches and extraordinary successes against Bedford (4-1) and Winchester (3-2) in the North Final. They finished off the season with a record of 16-4.
Senior co-skippers Ben France at three singles, alongside Amar and Avi Ruthen at one pairs, set the vibe for progress all through the season with their serious play.
Youngsters Andrew Meyer and Chris Li, Ben Grace and Alex Li had the option to pull out the successes for CCHS during the last match in Duxbury. While none of them lost a set during their matches, they persevered through the outrageous warmth all through long focuses and exceptionally close sets.
Sophomore Webb Constable, first year recruit Robert Soares and junior Josh Zhang balanced the ability in the group and will be instrumental in the group’s future achievement.
“Our prosperity was tons of group kinship, difficult work and persevering conviction,” said Coach Alex Spence. “This title was a multi-year measure, lighted by the responsibility of last year’s seniors whose season was dropped because of COVID-19, Cole Hamilton, Jacob Gechtman and Richie Chuang. They remained with Zoom exercises, in any event, when it was absolutely impossible that they planned to take the court with the players they were tutoring.”
Both the people’s groups, guardians and the Concord-Carlisle people group met up to have a sold-out pickleball pledge drive recently. They raised more than $40,000 that will go toward overhauling the tennis court offices nearby.
