FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham High boys tennis team hosted the Red Hawks of Natick High on Monday, May 10 at Bowditch Field. The matches needed to be played at Bowditch Field, and not Framingham High, as the tennis courts at the high school are in desperate need of repair.
Flyers Captain Sanjay Karikal, a junior, is returning at #1 singles and played a perfect match winning 6-0,6-0, said Framingham High boys tennis head coach Chris Strader.
Sophomore Jake Cahn (3rd singles) played an incredible 3-set match (5-7,7-5,0-6), said Strader. Natick’s Ty Ganz won the match.
“We are 0-3 on the season but I’m encouraged by the competitiveness I saw on Monday. We have Wellesley today (May 12) and Walpole on Friday,” said Strader.
Natick Eric Duracy defeated Framingham junior Luke Cohen at second singles 6-2 and 6-1.
Justus Frenkel and Jacob Simon defeated Flyers Sam Deveau and Finn Martin at first doubles 6-2, 4-6, and 6-1.
Red Hawks Nadav Fuxman and Alex Brenton defeated juniors Braeden Peterson and Griffin Yarmaloff at second doubles 4-6, 6-3 and 6-4.
