Tennis - Boys' Varsity
The MPrep boys' tennis squad - led by co-captains Shun-Yi Chang '19, Gongcheng Fu '19, and Sebastian Evans '19 - looks to build on a winning season from a year ago as they take to the courts in 13 matches this spring. Chang, a four-year Varsity player, joins Fu and Evans as potential singles players. Other talented returners include Mingyou Xu '20, Tianhao Lu '19, Slava Baliaev '19, Hien To '19, and John Stewart '19. All will be expected to contribute significantly in both singles and doubles.
The coaches are excited about the promise of some of the newcomers who have joined the program. These include Tian Feng '19, Yaozhong Hu '19. Christian Terwilliger '22, and Alex Deffley '22, amongst others. The squad will work diligently in practice to round into shape by the time of the first competitive match on April 6th. Formidable opponents like St. Andrew's School, Portsmouth Abbey, Beaver Country Day School, and Bancroft School loom large for the Golden Knights.
Everybody in the program is eager for the season to begin!
