PCHS wins 3-2 decision over Judge
April 13, 2010
Age is but a number for the Park City High School boys’ tennis team, featuring just three upperclassmen and as many as nine freshmen and sophomores. Flip that ratio and you get a more telling figure, 9-3, the Miners’ record in 2010.
"I’m really happy," said boys’ head coach Jessica Watts after beating Judge Memorial 3-2 at Liberty Park on Monday. "I think any coach would be happy with that and the effort I’ve gotten from the kids."
Watts changed up the lineup dramatically for Judge after focusing on doubles throughout the break. Because sophomore Sam McMahon is joining the team as its No. 2 singles player when it plays at West on Thursday, a head-to-toe lineup shuffle was in order.
Sophomore Stefan Dancy moves from No. 2 in the singles lineup to No. 1 doubles with junior Caleb Wray, while freshman Matt Grov and sophomore Kasra Motaghed Wray’s old partner at No. 1 are not the No. 2 team. Both duos won handily in their first action together Monday.
With junior Jackson Engen still out of town on break at No. 3 singles, sophomore Marco Testa showed the team’s depth and stepped in with a win, Watts said.
The coach encouraged fans to come out for Region 10 and 11 Divisionals at the Park City Racquet Club from May 7 to 8. The event is free for spectators and features two of the state’s toughest prep leagues.
