Livingston Boys Tennis Falls to Newark Academy

April 28, 2014 at 10:14 PM

LIVINGSTON, NJ- On Monday, the Livingston Lancers lost to Newark Academy for the second time in two days.

Livingston’s Anthony Caputo and Newark Academy’s Chris Paradis played in the first singles match.  Paradis was able to come away with the victory 6-2; 6-3 as he remained consistent throughout the match.

It was evident that Caputo put in a great deal of effort as he managed to hold at 5-2 and made Paradis serve for the match at 5-3. Still, Paradis’ overall consistency was too hard for Caputo to overcome.   “I was able to keep myself calm for most of the match but I have to improve on working the point more and putting more balls in,” said Caputo.

In the second singles match, Livingston’s Sam Farber played Newark Academy’s Jonathan Holtzman. Farber fell to Holtzman in a heated match, losing 3-6; 6-1; 3-6.   After losing the first set, Farber bounced back in great form.  However, Farber was unable to use this momentum to close out the match as Holtzman stood his ground.  

The third singles match was played between Lancer Earl Hsieh and Newark Academy’s Dylan Flanagan.  Flanagan came out of the match in superb form returning many difficult shots and won all six games in the first set.  Although Hsieh gained back his confidence and returned to his usual form in the second set, Flanagan stayed strong and ended the match in two sets, 6-0; 7-5.

In the first doubles match, Livingston’s Jesse Korovin and Justin Patel defeated Newark Academy’s Ben Hyatt and Noah Sellinger 1-6; 6-1; 6-3.  Patel’s forehand and Korovin’s serve proved to be too much for their opponents to handle.  When asked how they rebounded from losing the first set, Patel said, “we regrouped and pumped each other up every single point and we never thought about losing.”

After the win, Korovin commented on the match saying, “I wasn't scared at all after the rough first set because I knew that Patel and I had more than enough of what it takes to pull out the match if we kept it together, and I'm happy we did.”  

Livingston’s Austin Sertner and Matt Reuter lost in in the second doubles match against Cory Tell and Eric Schwed 1-6; 4-6.  After the match, Sertner said, “The loss was tough once the second set began knowing we lost the first set we knew we had to mix stuff up. We didn't execute well.”

The Lancers look to get back on track with a win against Millburn on Wednesday at Millburn High School.
