Event Details

Boys varsity tennis won their final regular season match 7-0 at home against Suffield Academy on Monday, May 14 for a final record of 7-5 on the year. It was also Senior Night for Tom Molson and Blix Salz who went undefeated in their final home matches for the Doors. It was a beautiful afternoon and a nice opportunity for different members of the team to get some playing time.

Doubles went smoothly as DA swept all three matches, along with the exhibition match. Gunter Weldon and Tai Feng, the youngest members of the team, paired up at #1 for a 8-2 win; hockey teammates Tom Molson and Ryan Diffley played at #2 and won 8-4; and capitalizing on their exciting win at Exeter, Blix Salz and Anthony Sparacio continued their winning streak at #3. Tommy McMahon and Christian Capella rounded out the sweep with their exhibition win.

Singles went equally as well for the Doors with straight set victories on every court. Tommy McMahon made his debut in the singles lineup at #6, Christian Capella had the easiest win of the day at #5, and Blix Salz closed out his DA career with a solid 6-2, 6-3 victory at #4. Freshman Gunter Weldon played his first ever match at #1 without facing too much of a challenge, and Tai Feng (2 singles) and Anthony Sparacio (3 singles) each had comfortable wins playing up from their usual spots on the ladder. In exhibition, Ryan Diffley continued to be undefeated in singles this year and Luka Kokosadze had to battle but also pulled through in straight sets.

The team is hopeful for a bid into New England’s this to be held on Saturday, May 18.
