Livingston Lancers Tennis Cruises Past Delbarton

April 10, 2014 at 11:55 PM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Lancers boys varsity tennis team has gotten off to a sizzling start to the season with a 4-0 record. After outlasting Mendham, 5-0, on April 5, the Lancers followed up with another easy victory on Thursday against the Delbarton Green Wave.

In the first singles match, Livingston’s Anthony Caputo stumbled for the first time this season against Delbarton’s Mike Boyle as the score line read 6-7; 6-4; 6-4 in Boyle’s favor.  Caputo is still trying to shake off some rust due to recent injuries and return to full strength.

In the first set, Caputo was able to muster enough points to win a competitive tiebreaker, 7-6.  However, he lost this momentum in the following sets as Boyle gave a phenomenal performance and took control of the match.

In the second singles match, Sam Farber of Livingston defeated Parker Pridgen, 6-1; 6-2. Farber took control of the match with his great serving. The crowd also gave him an extra lift as he explained that, “[his] teammates cheered [him] on, which helped [him] win.”

In the third singles match, Justin Patel of the Lancers beat Cameron Ketchum 6-0; 6-3. Patel said, “I had to keep my focus on individual points throughout the match and not overthink.” He went on to say, “When I went up 5-3 serving for the match, I had to keep my focus in order to pull out the win.” Patel’s groundstrokes were working for him throughout the match allowing him to breeze pass his opponent.

In the first doubles match, Dennis Li and Jesse Korovin conquered Kevin Wang and Charlie Niebanck 6-0; 6-2. Li and Korovin displayed great teamwork, which helped them cruise by their opposition. Korovin’s net play was spectacular as he smashed many un-returnable balls back across the net. Korovin commented on the match saying, “Dennis and I came out smiling and having fun. We came out in dominant fashion and the results showed—and having a great partner in Dennis makes it all the more fun.” Li said he felt that some keys to victory were, “… having a high first serve percentage and being aggressive at the net.”

Second doubles players of Livingston, Elan Rom and Earl Hsieh, rounded out the win with a 6-2; 6-2 victory against Kasen Furtado and Robert Steer.

The Lancers look to improve to 6-0 and maintain their undefeated record tomorrow away against Montclair. Following this match is the Bryan Bennett Memorial Tournament, where the Lancers finished in second place last year.

Waze.
