Livingston Lancers Boys Tennis Easily Defeats Columbia Cougars

April 26, 2014 at 12:40 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Lancers produced a solid performance against the Columbia Cougars after losing their previous match to Newark Academy.

In the first singles match, Livingston’s Anthony Caputo played Columbia’s Max Haase in a heated match. Caputo seized the victory 6-4; 6-4 as he improved his play while the game wore on.

In the first set, Caputo lost three straight games after leading Haase 4-1. However, Caputo displayed great perseverance and kept his head up to break Haase at 4-4.  This momentum carried him through the rest of the match, and ultimately the victory.

After the win, Caputo commented on the match saying, “after I broke at 4-4 in the first set, I gained a lot of confidence, but I have to work on staying stable throughout the match.”

In the second singles match, Livingston’s Sam Farber played Columbia’s Jared Levi.  Farber handily defeated Levi with a 6-0; 6-2 victory.

Following the match, Farber said, “I had to keep my focus and concentrate on keeping the ball in.”

Even though Farber won with ease, he said still feels the need to improve on some parts of his game especially, “moving my opponent side to side, rather than hitting the ball in the middle of the court.”

The third singles match between Earl Hsieh of the Lancers and Chandler Simon of the Cougars was also a relatively easy win. Hsieh won the match 6-2; 6-0 as his strength and power proved to be too much for Simon to handle. Hsieh frequently utilized his big serves, which helped him throw off his opponent and succeed.

Hsieh said, “I felt that some key points to winning the match were to keep my cool at the tough moments. Many of the games went to deuce and I faced many break points but played consistent.”

In the first doubles match, Livingston’s Matt Reuter and Elan Rom defeated Columbia’s Eric Friedlander and Slater Fox, 6-1; 6-0. The teamwork between Reuter and Rom proved to be too much to overcome for Friedlander and Fox as they cruised past their opponents.

Livingston seniors Kenny Lee and Matt Levey rounded out the win in the second doubles match against Aiden Barenhottz and Noman Makhdoom, 6-0; 6-0.

The Lancers look to continue their success on Monday against rival Newark Academy at home.

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead. At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
