Wootton Varsity Tennis defeats BCC 4 – 3. Wootton won the closest match of the season thanks to our three doubles teams and a great win by singles 4 sophomore Alex Yeh at the end of the match. Senior captain and singles 1 player Joseph Brailovsky was not feeling well, but played for the team and lost in an uncharacteristic match against a very good opponent. The rest of the team stepped it up – but it was a tough match. Sophomore singles 2 player Daniel Zhang was still recovering from his illness and had a great second set but lost – and this made it 0-2 for BCC. Senior captain Andy Xiao and sophomore Simon Huynh got a solid win at doubles 1 at 6-0, 6-3 and brought in our first team point. Our freshmen doubles 2 team of Mikey Fellman and Ryan Meyer won the first set in a tiebreaker, and then only gave up one game for the second set to tie the team score.

Junior captain Nick Huynh was still playing at singles 3, and sophomore Alex Yeh was still playing at singles 4. Alex won the first set easily at 6-0 and we thought we had it in the bag.
