After a landslide win against Hillsdale on Tuesday with a score of 7-0, Carlmont boys tennis was ready for an important match against Burlingame on Thursday, March 19.

Singles had to fight hard for their victory; third singles were the only match that didn’t go into a third set.

Freshman and first singles player Thomas Reznik said, “I knew the person that I was going to play was one of the best in the league, and that it was going to be a tough match,”

Doubles had a relatively easier time with only first doubles having to go to a third set. The first doubles team consists of senior Sohun Awsare and junior Bobby Goldie, and their game scores, 6-1, 1-6, and 6-2, reflect the intensity and uncertainty of their match.

Junior and third singles player Alex Yang said, “I thought that it was going to be an equal match, but that we were going to come out on top since Burlingame lost a lot of their stronger players,”

Consistency and hard work during practices is what ultimately got Carlmont the win.

“I have been practicing a lot at school and out of school and also working on my fitness too,” said Reznik.

Carlmont tennis coach Amina Doar said, “The match against Burlingame was a good match for the team, and the outcome was what I had expected from our team. It was the turn around we needed as we get ready for the second half of the season.”

Reznik said, “I think the season will go pretty well because our team is getting a lot better every single day.”

Yang shares Rezniks optimism about the rest of the season. He said, “I’m hoping that we make it to CCS so basically we need to win every single match from now on, except against Menlo Atherton. It’ll be hard when we play Aragon, but I’m sure that we can beat the other teams decisively.”
