SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- After having their first four matches of the year postponed due to bad weather, the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Boys tennis team finally played their opener vs. Governor Livingston.

The team has only two full-time starters returning from a season ago, and each of the team's positions are now being manned by different players than last year.  
Sophomore Brandon Glickstein, in his debut at 2nd singles, dominated Alex Woo, winning 6-2, 6-2, while the 1st doubles tandem of senior Andrew Ray and junior Rob Viglione, rallied from a set down, to secure a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 triumph.  

Governor Livingston secured wins at 1st singles where Harrison Joseph defeated junior, Ewan Jones 7-5, 6-2, as well as 3rd singles where Lenny Collins narrowly eclipsed sophomore Adam Mayerson 6-4, 6-4. In addition, GL's 2nd doubles team won 6-3, 6-3 over juniors Ashwin Anandacoumar and Neil Thombre.
