The Maharishi School tennis team opened their season with a 9-0 win at the Punj Courts in Fairfield today.
“We have a young team this year. No seniors and three of our boys have been playing less than a year,” said Coach Briggs. “Fortunately, we also have some veterans, including last year’s 3rd place state doubles duo, Kai Vessey and Daniel Zhu.”
Saturday, the Pioneers travel to Cedar Rapids to take on some of the largest 2-A schools in Iowa (Cedar Rapids Washington, Iowa City High, Cedar Rapids Kennedy, Davenport Central, and Decorah). “We’ve done well in Cedar Rapids in the past… we often finish 2nd or 3rd place,” said Coach Briggs.
Today’s winners for the Pioneers were:
#1 singles Kai Vessey
#2 singles Daniel Zhu
#3 singles Devan Burke
#4 singles Karthik Vempati
#5 singles Kevin Fan
#6 singles Frank Wang
The Pioneers also swept the doubles matches.
