This past Tuesday, the RASG Hebrew Academy boys and girls varsity tennis team travelled to Moore Park to host thier school rival, the Katz Yeshiva High School (KYHS). Despite some tough losses by the boys, the girls remained undefeated in their season with a 7-0 victory.
Eden Shushan (11th grade) and Kayla Herskowitz (10th) each won their singles matches with a score of 8-0, as the Lady Warriors jumped out to a 5-0 lead after singles play.
“I think the season is going really well,” said Herskowitz. “We are having a lot of fun, and hopefully we will be able to win districts.”
Gabe Apoj (12th) and Caleb Katz (11th) both played exceptionally well, defeating their opponents from KYHS. Apoj, the first seed for the Warriors, scored the first point for the team by winning a singles match with an 8-6 victory. Katz, the second seed, pushed the lead to 2-0 with an 8-7 victory in a singles match.
“The season is going well. Even though we only have three matches left, we will make the best of the rest of the season, especially since we are approaching districts,” Katz said. “I’m optimistic about our chances to win. I think we can do it.”
While many seasoned players are looking toward districts, others are basking in their 15 minutes of fame.
“I think it’s fun, and pretty chill for the most part. I guess I am relatively excited for districts,” said Joseph Abrahams (10th). “Although ball is life, I like tennis more, especially since I didn’t get much playing time during basketball season.”
The Warriors and Lady Warriors look to improve their records on the season when they face off against the Chaminade-Madonna Lions this upcoming Tuesday.
