It was business as usual for boys tennis as they rolled to a 6-1 at home against Taft.
Doubles continues to be a strength for Deerfield with the team sweeping all 3 contests. The only pressure Deerfield felt was at #1 where the team of Sarachek/Ueland had to step up their intensity to close out their match.
Singles was more challenging but the team fought hard and all 5 wins were completed in straight sets. At #3, freshman Max Peh went down 0-3 but deep, heavy groundstrokes allowed him to battle back and ultimately win 6-4, 6-2.
This win brings the team back to a winning record on the year (4-3) with one last match to play on Saturday, 5/22 at home against Suffield Academy.
