Penn High School’s Tennis Team won  regional primary on Tuesday, where they won four out of five games.

On Tuesday, October 4, the PHS Tennis Team went to the regional primary,  where they played against John Adams High School. Penn won both of the doubles games, and two out of the three singles games.

In the number 1 doubles,  Penns’ Captains  Mason Lee and Cole Pollyea dominated against Adams’ James Dokes and Matthew Peterson, winning 6-0 in both sets. The other doubles game was (P) Eric Spaargaren and Jack Spaulding beat the opposing Edward Nagy and Elliot Zyniewicz, winning 6-2 in the first set and 6-0 in the second set.

Number 1 singles, AJ Antonelli, defeated Thomas Han 6 to 4 and 6 to 0 in the round two, scoring another victory for Penn. In number 3 singles Penn’s Sid Das won against Zach Fernandez 6-4 and 7-5. When asked how he felt about his win, Das answered  “Yeah, boy! I feel good now!”

Unfortunately, Penn gained one loss. Adams’ Donnell Williams won against Owen Klepe, who defended his loss by saying “I’ve played pretty solid. I’ve lost some earlier this week, and now I’m up 5 to 1. I’ve been hitting some good forehands and some solid backhands. And altogether, overall, it was pretty solid.”

While the team may have won regional primaries, they play their finals tonight, October 5, at 7:00. If you have the time, you should go, and if you don’t, wish them luck!
