Tennis times: Boys’ tennis’ first match of the season is an ace

The COVID-19 pandemic stopped everything from school to sports in its tracks. Today, while restrictions have relaxed, one can still see signs of COVID-19 everywhere. Not everyone can go to away games, and it is not recommended for parents to spectate even their own kids. Nonetheless, the CHS boys’ tennis team played against Glendora in its first match in over a year on Friday, March 12, and they came out ready to play. Although rain shortened the match, the team was still able to get a few sets in.
In singles, every player went undefeated. The pack were almost always ahead, and never stopped playing hard until it was over. Number one singles player Josh Bonner won both of his sets 6-1 and 6-3. Number two singles Leonard Wieman and number three singles Xabi Glovsky won their sets 6-2, 6-1 and 6-1, 6-0 respectively.
In doubles, every duo went undefeated as well. The number one doubles pair, Reginald Wang and Hanan Song won their sets 7-5 and 6-4. However, unfortunately, the doubles number two pair Jude Emmert and Will McDermott and the doubles number three pair Carter Chan and Kyle Chen only got a few games in before the match got canceled due to rain. However, they were winning 4-0 and 2-1, respectively.
The Wolfpack traveled to Arcadia High School yesterday, where they were expected to face a tough challenge.
