The Revere High boys tennis team earned their first win of the season with a 3-2 victory over Lynn Classical last week.
The three singles players for Coach Mike Flynnâ€™s Patriots accounted for all three of their teamâ€™s points and they did so in sterling fashion with straight set whitewashings of their Classical foes.
Francesco Tartaglia, playing at No. 1 singles, was a 6-0, 6-0 winner; Richard Bonilla did likewise at second singles; and Malak Mossadek won his third singles match in easy fashion, 6-0, 6-1.
Though the Patriot doubles teams did not triumph, they made a good showing. The first doubles duo of Parawat Chaiwong and Nick Mucci fell by a score of 2-6, 4-6, and the second doubles tandem of Nick Tran and William Truong lost by a score of 3-6, 4-6.
â€œIt was nice to get that first win,â€ said Flynn. â€œWe have a very young team, with 13 of our 17 players either freshmen or sophomores, but our senior captains are showing outstanding leadership.â€
In a 5-0 loss to Beverly two days later, the second doubles pairing for Revere featured sophomore Tim Mellon and freshman Mladen Pepic. â€œWeâ€™re still moving players up and down the ladder and we expect to give all of our freshmen and sophomores a chance to play,â€ said Flynn. â€œWe have a great group of kids who are committed to working hard and hopefully weâ€™ll continue to improve as the season progresses.â€
Flynn and company played Lynn English Monday and then travel to Peabody today (Wednesday) and to Gloucester tomorrow.
