Boys tennis eases past WJ 6–1

[score id=”49707″ align=”right”]
The boys tennis team (7–0) conquered the WJ Wildcats (6–3) with a 6–1 victory Monday.

The Vikings entered the game hopeful and determined to defeat their opponents.

“WJ is a Division One team, and those matches are always tough and very important,” fourth doubles player Julian Kafta said. “But our lineup was strong enough to get the win.”

The Wildcats put up a fierce fight against the Vikings, resulting in many close matches between the two competitors. Fourth singles player Kevan Nathani went 6–3, 6–1, second doubles team Will Caudron and Ben Marks went 6–4, 6–3 and first doubles team Oscar Levine and Julian Kafka went 6–3, 6–4.

“Although we won 6–1 overall, the other team definitely provided many challenges for us,” fourth singles player Kevan Nathani said. “WJ is a very consistent and a solid team and they made it clear that if we wanted to win, we would have to earn it.”
