On a day when the New Castle Tennis Team started a new tradition of recognizing the annual Silver Anniversary Team, the boys went 1-1 in our very competitive invitational. In the first round, we faced a tough and experienced Northeastern team. Trent Alfrey got the lone point for the Trojans at #3 Singles. But both doubles teams lost very close 3rd set tiebreakers that could have gone either way to determine the team outcome of the match. In the second round, we faced another tough opponent in Hamilton Heights and we swept all three singles to win the match 3-2. All in all, a great day and we gained valuable experience at several positions.
1st Round: 4-1 loss to Northeastern
1S – Josh Martin lost 2-6, 2-6
2S – James Harris lost 2-6, 2-6

2nd Round: 3-2 win over Hamilton Heights
1S – Josh Martin won 7-6, 6-0
2S – James Harris won 6-3, 7-5
