From Coach Ducharme

Despite only practicing for two weeks, I could tell that this season was going to be a great team. We were competing for a third consecutive league title and returning many players. Varsity veterans Auggie Obenauer and Johnny Regan were emerging as team leaders. Returners Sam Shaw and Dylan Blair were competing for starting positions. Our Italian exchange student, Angelo Cocita, was quickly playing his way up the challenge ladder. First year player Erich Rudolph came in with great enthusiasm and was eager to learn. Our seniors will long be remembered for the positive impression they made on me and their teammates. We look forward to hearing about their successes at the next level and hope to see them on the courts this summer!
