Highlights;

               Captain Eduardo Gadsden`13 continued his winning ways, beating his 1st singles counterpart easily in straight games.  Wyatt Lichtenger`14 played well after adjusting to being outside.  He had many long rallies with his opponent, but won key points at key times to beat him 8-3.  Zach Leighninger`13 went up early on his opponent, but allowed him to pick his way back to even.  Momentum switched and he found himself on the losing side at 4-8.  Nicky Li`13 never really found his stride in this one and lost 1-8.  Elliot Wang`14 and Will Davis`13 were ahead in the early going of their match.  However, they lost focus midway through and allowed their Woodstock opponents to tie it up.  They regrouped and regained their composure, but were unable to pull out a win, losing 7-9.  Karl Shen`14 and Katerina Ellison`14 played a more evenly matched contest than the score might suggest, but ultimately fell 2-8.  Ben Mooney`16 and Richard Liu`14 played one of the more exciting matches of the day.  They were ahead early, but dropped a few consecutive games and went behind.  However, they stayed competitive and regained composure, slowly clawing their way back.  Down 5-7, and with the Woodstock team serving, they stayed strong and managed to break serve to bring the score to 6-7.  Ben Mooney`16 buckled down and held serve to tie it at 7-7.  Again the Phoenix prevailed and broke their serve to go ahead 8-7.  Richard Liu`13 served the next game to win the match 9-7.  Our next match is at home this coming weekend, Family Weekend, verses Gould Academy.
