With playoffs approaching, boys’ tennis, 7-6, remain focused on their goal of getting a good seed in the postseason.

“I think this is the time that we should all lock in and I think we’re pretty ready for the playoffs coming up next week,” said senior Ryan Niimi, a captain.

According to coach Andrew Horen, maintaining calmness and consistency to secure wins against other teams is really important. Sophomore Alex Du, a singles player, highlighted the team’s promise.

“Everyone on the team just has great potential to be great tennis players,” he said.

Coach Horen praised the team’s upbeat nature. They’re supporting each other both on and off the court, too.

“These guys have a lot of fun together, sometimes too much fun. But when they focus and get together, they support one another. It’s fun to watch.”

On Senior Night Wednesday, the Gondoliers shut out the 4-7 University Wildcats 7–0. The team has more confidence playing in their home court, according to Horen.

“We beat Uni the first time we played them and we seem to play better at home.”

Junior Nate Berman complimenting their Senior Night opponent.

“Some secret weapons came out,” he said.

Against Fairfax Monday, the team pulled off a big 7-0 victory missing key players, like juniors Evan Doi, a doubles player and Zach Lev, a singles player.

“We won pretty handedly,” Niimi said.
