The boys varsity tennis team destroyed the Archbishop Riordan Crusaders 7-0 on April 5 at Lowell, maintaining their undefeated streak in the Academic Athletic Association league and continuing down the path to winning their 11th consecutive AAA Tennis Boys Annual championship.

Doubles partners senior Nathan Ng and junior Joshua Wong, sophomores Jacob Beltran and Curtis Lee, and sophomores Jason Ogilvie and Alexander Lui all scored 6-0, 6-0 in their respective matches. The singles division also swept the floor, with sophomores Evan Fox and Angus Wong, as well as seniors Andrew Trinh and Justin Wong, all scoring 6-0, 6-0.

Partners Ng and Wong felt that they were well-matched with their opponents. “It was easier than our previous [matches], but we did have some rallies going,” Ng said. “I think [our opponents] played fairly well.”

During their match, Ng and Wong aimed to balance their aggression with caution and not to get ahead of themselves. “We tried to play aggressive but not out of control,” Wong said. According to Ng, the two worked on consistently “getting the ball on the other side of the court, but also waiting for an opportunity to put the ball away.”

The team has an impressive winning streak, but the athletes want to ensure that their performance stays even-keeled even if their victories seem to come easily. “We’re able to take the game seriously even though we might be laughing and smiling and joking around sometimes,” said Ng. “We know what’s at stake, we know we have to play hard and challenge our own skills.”

The next match will be against the St. Ignatius Wildcat at 3:30 p.m. on April 25 at Lowell.

Lauren Caldwell, Photographer

As an appreciator of the work of photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon, I have and continue to be fascinated with the faces of people—their expressions, their environment, and how best to represent the essence of their identity in a two-dimensional snapshot. Generally, you will find me at the movies, the art museum, or a record store. I am a lover of old and foreign films with captivating cinematography and generally, any horror movie I can get my hands on. My favorite film to date would have to be La Dolce Vida and favorite novel— The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. In terms of music, I enjoy punk rock and my taste in art varies—whatever can stir up my emotions.
