Andover Boys Tennis made quick work of Middlesex last Friday for a 6-2 victory. In addition to playing inside, slightly different from what the team is used to, with six single-set singles matches instead of two set matches, the team successfully compensated for the absence of key players Co-Captain Henry Kalb ’14 and Dan Wang ’14.
Andover grabbed an early 2-1 lead with doubles wins at the Number 1 and 2 spots.
After a winning doubles performance at third doubles last week, newcomer William Way ’17 moved up to the second court to replace Kalb and play with Michael Huang ’15. The duo clicked and secured an 8-3 win for Andover.
Andover continued with this upward momentum in singles play, only dropping eight games total on Courts 1, 2, 3 and 5. Jonathan Jow ’16 filled in for Wang at Number 5 singles, stepping up to the plate with a decisive 6-3 win that gave Andover its sixth point.
After falling 1-6 to Millfield from Somerset, England, last week, Andover will hope to utilize this newfound confidence when it takes on Nobles & Greenough at home this Friday.
