The GHS boys tennis team is not looking back and is determined to clinch a playoff spot.

They are four matches into a satisfying season, sitting at a comfortable 2-2 record. Head coach Derek Geary, who is in his second season as head coach, has been pushing and encouraging the boys to use their athleticism and competitiveness in practices as they prepare for upcoming matches.

“We have a lot of great athletes…tennis is a game where good athletes can progress quickly by using the athleticism they have,” said Geary.

The Fishermen are hoping to improve their .500 record early. The 2-2 record came from losses to Medford and Swampscott but were able to come away with wins over Everett and Lynn English. The boys were able to come out with a 5-0 win over Everett lead by Chris Noyes playing first singles, Roger Tanaka at second singles and Dan MacDowell at third singles. A win that boosted Gloucester’s confidence.

Gloucester won a close match against Lynn English that ended at 3-2. The Fishermen were able to come up with three wins with Dan MacDowell playing second doubles, Anthony Parco playing third singles, and Joe Kibango with Kyle Watts at first doubles.

“Our goal is to get better everyday, qualify for the state tourney and continue to have fun within our closely knit team,” said Geary.

The Fishermen are hoping to come away with another win when they face Lynn Classical at home today at 4:00.
