By Zoe Wang '22
 


Head Coach: Marion Weber

Last season's highlights: 
Led by Luke Ittycheria '19 and Christopher Yu '19, the 2019 team (12-6) had a great season, finishing as NJSIAA Non-Public B South Sectional Champions. They also placed second in the Prep A Tournament, third overall in the Somerset County Tournament, and took the top spot in the Delaware Division of the Skyland Conference. 


What to watch for this season: 

  • Hugh Zhang '21, who played first singles last year, will serve as co-captain with Walker Johnson '21. 

  • A large group of incoming freshmen will compete for varsity positions; about 24 players total are on the varsity and JV rosters. 

  • The boys will face tough competition against rival schools Montgomery, Hunterdon Central, and Basking Ridge. 

  • Major goals for the season include defending their sectional title, and performing equally well if not better in the Prep and county tournaments. 

  • The captains are excited for the season, and are planning a few fun events for the team.


Full-court press: 
"The players have been working hard in the off-season, and I'm hoping to build on the success we had last year. I'm looking forward to a fun and competitive season!"—Head Coach Weber
