The 2018 Phelps School tennis teams were excited to begin the season on newly resurfaced courts painted in U.S. Open colors. The varsity tennis team was composed of three returning members, two returning junior varsity, and two newcomers. Lukas Johnson moved up from the third singles position to first singles; an impressive, yet challenging task for a freshman. With new faces on varsity, along with an entirely new junior varsity squad, both teams were eager to improve their skills while also competing for a league title.
Extremely cold temperatures followed by ten inches of snow, prolonged the beginning of the season. Still, coaches Dan Knopp and Dennis Birtch were impressed with the dedication and development of this diverse group of five middle-schoolers, five freshmen, three sophomores, three juniors, and five seniors. With only one of the seniors playing varsity, future years are looking bright.
