Laguna came out swinging in the final round, with Benji Sorensen and Tristan Prinz (Thorpe Tennis, pictured above) collecting quick wins in singles, and the doubles combinations of Alex Greer/ Alex Shirokow-Louden (pictured left) and Ben Furukawa/Eddie Conk (all from Thorpe Tennis) picking up the tie and go-ahead wins in doubles.
With a final score of 11-7, the Owls ended an 11-match, 7-year losing streak against Thacher, and took an important step towards it’s season goals. The first of two goals was to finish the season with a winning record, which is now guaranteed. The second goal is to reach the playoffs, which is still possible if Laguna pulls out the upset at Dunn this coming Wednesday.
For now though, I am so very proud of the players I work with privately at Thorpe Tennis and the rest of the guys on the team for their excellent performance today. Big thanks are also due to the players’ parents, without whose support none of this would be possible. Look out Condor League, there’s a new team in town!
