SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The SPFHS Raiders shutout Union Catholic 5-0 for their first win of the young tennis season. After having much of the opening week's matches canceled, the teams were able to play at Kramer Courts.
 
Senior co-Captain and first singles player, Brandon Glickstein, stopped Dan Nocera 6-0, 6-0. Nocera was coming off a thrilling comeback and season opening victory vs. Elizabeth, but was unable to get much of anything going as Glickstein came out on fire, surrendering only 2 points in the first set.  
 
Sophomore Brett Strug also won his match at 2nd singles, defeating John Mintell, 6-0, 6-0. With the graduation of Ewan Jones, Strug has moved up in the lineup and is looking to continue his development after an impressive freshman campaign.  
 
 
Nirmit Damania, a co-Captain and 3rd singles player beat Gabe Abood 6-0, 6-0.
 
At first doubles, juniors, Ben Fox and Ryan Cleary teamed up for a 6-0, 6-3 triumph over Sawyer Reis and Ben Abood.  The 2nd doubles pairing of junior, Jeffrey Lapidus and Brian Huang finished off the sweep winning 6-0, 6-0 over Matt D'Aleo and Jeremy Bonnell.
 
Next up for the Coach Gary Wasserman's Raiders squad will be the Lancer Tournament on Saturday, hosted by Livingston.
