Hyde School: 5
Putnam Science: 1
Hyde extended their winning streak to three straight matches today. The team traveled to play Putnam Science with a slightly different line-up than usual. Scott Leonard, Johnny Schaer, and Leo Cao started the match for Hyde at first, second, and third singles. All three had commanding victories. Leonard and Cao defeated their opponents 6-1, while Schaer shut out his opponent 6-0.
The first and third doubles also gave their opponents little to celebrate. Kevin Ge and Tony Shao exited the court without giving Putnam Science a single game. Equally impressive was the success of Virginia Garrity and Nicky Gomez by attaining their first win, 6-2. Liam Gorey and Richard Tang played together for the first time and suffered a tough loss in the second doubles position by losing a tight match with the final score of 5-6.
Overall, Leonard and Cao were able to pick up their first wins of the season. The Hyde School Tennis Team has really turned around their season from starting 0-3 to improving their record to 3-3. They hope to continue this momentum into next week when they meet Putnam Science again for a chance to earn a winning record.
