After going undefeated since their opening match in September against Dutchess Community College the girl’s tennis team is gearing up for regionals with a 6-0 record.
The girls and tennis Coach Chris A. Cosenza who received coach of the year in 2006, will head to Orange County Community College in New Jersey where they have a number one seed. A win at regionals could send the team to nationals in the spring.
With their season coming to a rapid end, the Clippers prepared to play against their final tough competitors, Fashion Institute of Technology but that was not the case for our opponents. F.I.T. forfeited the match on Friday because they only had two players attend giving the Clippers another win. With another win, the lady Clippers prepared for their last and final match on Sunday against Orange County but due to the weather the event was cancelled. Jill Frank, a sophomore and returning player from last year said the game was an exhibition and it will not be rescheduled.
With the last two games being either forfeited or cancelled, the team gained time to prepare for regionals. The Lady Clippers will head to regionals on Thursday October 22nd, in New Jersey where we have been attending since 2004. They are unsure of their competitors but are sure they will see their rival, Kingsborough County, where they hope to take another win. The Clippers defeated Kingsborough County on October 12th, 4-3.
“I am excited for regionals and can’t wait to see what we place. My teammates and I have had a great season and hope to head to nationals in the spring,” Frank said.
