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.

Wednesday, May 10 against the Sharks:

First single - Quinn Keating lost his matchup in a tiebreaker. He won the first set 7-6, lost the second set 6-7, and lost the third set 3-6.

Second single - Henry Kathawala lost his matchup in a tiebreaker but like Keating, he nearly walked away with a victory. He lost the first set 5-7 before freezing past the second set 6-1. In the tie breaking third set, Kathawala lost it 5-7.

Third single - Nik Krastev continued his strong freshman year by pulling out a hard-fought victory over Gavin McDonnell. Krastev won the first set 7-6 but lost the second set 3-6. In the tiebreaking third set, Krastev came out on top 6-4.

First double - Aidan Sullivan and Hunter Gross made quick work of their opponents, beating them in straight sets 6-3, 6-1.
