The Boys Varsity Tennis Team ended the season on a high note as runners up in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Tournament May 17 at the Pingree School in South Hamilton Massachusetts. It was the first time in Kents Hill School history the boys tennis team had been invited.
At the NEPSACs, the team played Beaver Country Day School in the semi-finals and defeated them 4-0 to earn a spot in the finals.
They played Millbrook School in the finals. The Huskies lost the doubles when they lost one 8 game pro set 9-7 and in six singles matches, Millbrook won three and were declared the champions. Daniel Sheppard ’14, Shin Ota ’15 and Mikel Ellena Martinez ’15 all won their first sets of singles but due to tournament rules were unable to finish once Millbrook had won the other three.
“The boys had a great day,” said Coach Patrick C. McInerney, “They are the New England runners up and they represented themselves and the school with determination and class.”
Going into the tournament the team has accumulated a 19-0 winning streak, remaining undefeated for two years. Earlier last week, three singles players: Zach Miller ’14, Daniel Sheppard ’14 and Shin Ota ’15 went into the semi-finals of the Boys MAISAD singles match undefeated. After playing for more than four hours, Zach and Shin faced each other in the finals, with Zach emerging as the winner (6-4, 6-2).
