The girls celebrated the seniors at their last home match
Welcome to the 2018 season!
SFP Tennis A completes their 20 consecutive League win!
GIRLS VARSITY TENNIS LEAGUE/STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2016 Girls Varsity Tennis team had seven seniors on the roster and they were determined to end their high school career with another league and state championship. They would not be denied and they were not. Seniors Lejla Redzematovic, Lindsey Sayour, Micaela Prisco, Camille Uy, Alexis Sakatis, Gianna Medici and Claudia Villagra stormed through the regular season
undefeated but saved the best for the playoffs and championship matches. The seniors were augmented by two all-star juniors in Olivia Morris and Sarah Williams playing 1st and 3rd singles. Junior Alexa Poulos and sophomores Marianna Zehas and
Andrea Stopanjac also made valuable contributions to the teams success.
In the league championship match against Sacred Heart the girls brought their best tennis and overwhelmed S.H. 7-0. Now it was on to the state championships against our perennial opponent Mary Louis. Mary Louis had gone through the NYC Catholic League undefeated and were looking for their second victory over S.F.P. in the last twenty years. It was not to be. The
Terriers destroyed the Hilltoppers losing only three games in five matches. Olivia Morris at #1 singles won 6-0, 6-1, Lindsey Sayour at #2 singles won 6-0, 6-0, Sarah Williams at #3 singles won 6-0, 6-0, Lejla Redzematovic/ Camille Uy at #1 doubles won 6-1, 6-0, Micaela Prisco/Marianna Zehas at #2 doubles won 6-0, 6-1. This was Preps 19 consecutive league championship and 18th state championship in the last 19 years. It was driven by a team of high achievers. The teamʼs academic average was 95, the highest in history. Having coached the girls Varsity A team for the last 19 years, I can honestly say that this was the most determined group of student athletes I have ever coached. Great girls, great team, great season.
