HTML tutorial

After a few seasons in which the Boys Tennis team finished in the lower half of the division, the Hawks turned it around this season to finish with a 7-5 record, placing third in the A1 Division. In the playoffs, the Hawks had a first round bye and in the second round they played the High School of American Studies at Lehman College and lost 3-2.

Some key wins of this season occurred against Bayside and Forest Hills High School, schools that the Hawks had lost to in the past.

Harris had several key members who contributed to the team’s success, such as freshman Stephen Mai who was on 2nd Doubles

Stephen said, “My rookie season went well.” As for the future of this team he feels that the team “will continue to improve [their] record.”

Nonetheless, the Hawks will be losing senior Patrick Aguda, who was a key figure in 2nd Singles, and captain Andrew Eichenholz.

Patrick finished his season 5-5, while going 1-0 in the playoffs.

Junior Christopher Hu, who took over the position of 1st Singles, said, “The future looks bright as our players have much time to further develop and grow as a team.”

Coach Mark Ifill took over the reins as the team’s coach in the 2011-2012 season to try and make the Hawks a team that could compete and win. Coach Ifill took over a team that had finished 0-12 in the 2010-2011 season, and led the Hawks all the way to a 7-5 record this season.

The boys season gave the Hawks a feeling of what it is like to win and be a competitive team, and as Christopher Hu said about next year’s team, “Together it is very possible for us to be one of the top teams in the borough.”
