Key Newcomers:

Henry Long Sophomore, Victor Manzella Junior, and Alex De Gale Junior 

“All returning players, but first year varsity. They will contribute to our tremendous doubles depth.”

Owen Wandawlowski – first year senior.

“Has tremendous potential. Will slide into our no3 doubles team along with Enzo. I have high hopes for that doubles pairing.”

Matt Keenan, Alex Germick, and Thomas Dzik Freshman –

“We have three new freshman with high potential. None will start right out of the gate, but Matt is close and could see some playing time this year. All project to be future starters down the line.”

2022 Outlook: “We will have our work cut out for us in attempting to defend our District Title. We have big shoes to fill in replacing Jessie and Dylan at singles. I believe we have the pieces to do it. We are currently working hard this opening week to see where everyone fits in the lineup. We will have great senior leadership and experience to lean on in Charlie, Jake and Enzo. Timmy will lead our singles lineup, and I expect us to have tremendous doubles depth, and be very strong up and down the lineup. The guys are excited to get started and fight to defend our title.”
