The boys tennis team won a pair of matches in back-to-back days. Their first win was over the Monomoy Sharks on Wednesday 3-2 and their second win was a 5-0 victory over the St. John Paul II Lions on Thursday. The Whalers were ranked #6 in the latest MIAA rankings so after winning two games - including one over Div. 4's #5 ranked Sharks - Nantucket could be rising when the latest rankings come out Friday morning.
Below are the results from each game.
