Village Boys Doubles Team Prevail as Tournament CHAMPIONS!
Congratulations to Sebastian A. and Sharan S. on an impressive Boys A Doubles tournament victory on Friday 2/23 @ Bay Area Racquet Club! We defeated teams from Bay Area Christian School, Houston St Johns School, and Fort Bend Christian Academy. The boys came together when it mattered most as they battled in the finals. Down 1-4, then down 4-6, the boys battled to tie the match at 7-7 sending it to a tiebreak to decide the championship! Village prevailed 7-3 and took home the title 8-7 over FBCA! "This Doubles Team has the potential to be special and achieve great things", coach Eric Striesfeld shared. They will be a force to be reckoned with in our district this season!
The Boys B Doubles Team of Abhay S. and Shreeram K. came out fired up defeating teams from LSA and Houston St Johns School, before falling in the finals! Claiming 2nd place was a terrific accomplishment this early in the season as we look to have this carry over into district competition! "The boys were pumped up and that energy is essential for overall success!" Coach Striesfeld shared.
The Girls A Doubles Team of Katrina R. and Penelope S. competed strong defeating a team from LSA before dropping consecutive matches to St Johns and LSA, finishing 4th. "This was a good learning experience for the girls and we are confident we can make these adjustments and achieve results in district play. I'm VERY confident that these girls care deeply and are ready to battle" Coach Eric Striesfeld shared!
The Village School varsity tennis team has a full week ahead competing on Tuesday 2/27 vs Duschenne and St Thomas, Thursday 3/1 vs Awty International School, and playing in a full day tournament at Bay Area Racquet Club On 3/2.
