The boys’ varsity tennis team came in second in last month’s China Cup tournament, while the junior varsity team came in third.
The two teams went to Hong Kong International School to participate in their China Cup tournament against HKIS and the International School of Beijing.
The varsity boys’ team won second place in the tournament with a total of five singles wins, seven singles losses, two doubles wins, and four doubles losses. Captain senior Stone Yan said, “We had a lot of fun, and it was a good learning experience for many of those on our team who had not been to China Cup or APAC.”
The junior varsity team finished third in the tournament. They had a total of two singles wins, ten singles losses, two doubles wins, and four doubles losses. However, “It was their first game against HKIS and doesn’t reflect their best performance,” said JV boys’ coach Mr. Blake Brown, high school science teacher. He also pointed out the stellar performance of freshman Jamie Liu and senior Bum Cheul Park. They both won most of their singles game and won their doubles game together.
