Cougar Spirit

Tennis vs. Goffstown 4/13

Mike Leary
On Tuesday the Cougars took the court for the first time since 2019.  Led by a strong group of senior captains, Max Smith, Chris Lynch, and Chris Van Natta, the team swept Goffstown 9-0.  Sophomore Jack Schroeder, playing in his first match, faced a hard-hitting Goffstown number one, but quickly jumped out to a 7-4 lead.  After dropping a few games, Jack overcame his nerves and put his opponent away 8-6.  At second singles Chris Lynch showed nerves early and was down 3-6, before evening the score at 7-7.  After a tense deuce game, Chris took control and won the match 9-7.  Chris Van Natta and Max Smith at numbers three and four singles showcased their consistency and control easily putting their opponents away 8-1.  The highlight of the match was our two freshmen, Jack Krasnof and Billy Gardner, who cruised to victory putting 8-0 wins on the board.

We went into doubles up 6-0, so we used the opportunity to work on doubles strategy.  Chris Lynch and Jack Schroeder dominated the net and came out with an 8-4 victory.  Max Smith and Chris Van Natta put their opponents away easily, winning 8-2.  Our two lefties, Billy Gardner and Jack Krasnof notched a win in their first doubles match.  

Thanks to the parents who came out and we are looking forward to a tough match against Exeter today at 4.
