In their first team outing, the Raider Boys Varsity Tennis Team swept Mars Area in a pre-season match up. Singles players Richie Lyons, Chase Conroy, and Ben Swensen impressed. Chase and Ben each won in straight sets while Richie took his to a third set win. New comers Mark McClelland and Jake Shoop came back from a first set deficit of 1-4 to win in straight sets 6-4, 6-2 at the second doubles position. The first doubles team of veteran Jack Harden and newcomer Nick O’Toole showed competitiveness in their 6-3, 7-5 win. The team of Jack Migely and Dan Donatucci also posted a win. Ryan Boland, another rookie, also saw quality playing time in exhibition match ups.
Overall, the team is very encouraged by the preseason win against a Class AAA team.
