From the Coaches

This year’s tennis team did an excellent job. We did something we have not done since 2007. The varsity team was successful against a Friends League School. It was a very exciting match. The format for the match was: 3 singles matches and two doubles matches. After competing for two hours, we were tied with the George School at 2-2 with the 3rd singles match still in progress. The coaches had to stop that match in the middle of the final set because it was too dark to see the ball. At that time the score of the deciding set was 4-2 in favor of Serena Boyesen. She needed just two more games to win her match. After a 10 day delay with plenty of time to think about the significance of the match, to feel the pressure of competing on center stage and to contemplate the strengths and weaknesses of her own game, the event finally took place. Fortunately for ANC, Serena did a tremendous job, maintaining her focus, staying calm and playing each point as if the score was zero-zero. To the delight of her teammates, coaches and fans, Serena won the match 6-3 and ANC won the competition. To add icing to the cake the team also won a second Friends League match against Friends Select. This was the first time we have won two league matches since 1999. Our overall match record was 8 wins, 8 losses and one tie. The entire squad and I would like to thank Coach Hodgell and Coach Bryntesson for their dedication, patience and humor. Their efforts during practices and games were appreciated by all.
