Varsity Tennis Places Second out of Eight in Fessenden Tournament

Mr. Townsend
NEWTON, Mass. – May 18, 2024 – On Saturday, the top four players from Eaglebrook Varsity Tennis drove two hours east to the annual Fessenden Tournament. Fueled by Dunkin’ Donuts, the Eagles were fired up to play in an event that they were unable to join last year. Before the tournament commenced, it was clear from the warmup scouting that this was going to be a competitive day!

All four Brookies managed to pull off decisive first-round victories on the slightly damp courts. Unfortunately, round two eliminated a pair of our players, and a third exited in the following round. Due to a quirky scoring system, this meant that players who lost in the first round could earn more points in the consolation bracket, which added to the pressure on our remaining player. Fortunately, our player squeezed his way into the finals, only to lose to the top player from Fessenden.
With second place out of eight teams, the squad should be quite proud of their day outside Boston. We’ll get ‘em next year!
