Tennis (Boys): Junior Varsity vs. Exeter (05/11/24 1:00 PM)

Event Details

The Deerfield boys JV tennis team (4-7) lost on the road against Exeter on May 11th, although many of the matches were much closer than the final score would indicate. The singles matches were played first, in an 8-game, pro-set format with ads. After 4 matches, Deerfield were down 3-1, but the final two matches were very close. Unfortunately, Deerfield dropped both of them, and the match was over after singles, with Exeter ahead 5-1. Two of the doubles matches, worth one point total, began while the singles were still being played with the same format. The coaches decided not to play the 1st team doubles, since that would have prolonged the overall match that was already over anyway. Deerfield lost both of them, although they were just as close as the final two singles matches, and the final score was 6-1.
