A PLURALISTIC, COLLEGE PREPARATORY JEWISH DAY SCHOOL FOR GRADES 6-12.

STUDENT ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Matthias Langer (10th, JV Tennis) Ethan Willner (10th, V Tennis)

Week of 5/13

Ethan Willner played his best match of the season last Thursday against Solebury. He always finds the second gear that helps him figure out a way to win matches whenever he is not playing at his best. In fact, this season has been challenging because some of the opponents that he played did not give him the opportunity to find his best tennis. The match against Solebury was even more challenging because Ethan was up against a tough opponent that he beat last year in a final tiebreaker that required a lot of mental toughness in order to secure the win. This year, Ethan was clearly the best player on the court as he was able to hit most of his shots at will after he got broken early in the first set. His first serve was a weapon that his opponent could not handle. Also, the adjustments that he made to his approach shot and his second serve showcased his high tennis IQ. Great Job on a perfect match Ethan.

 

Matthias Langer is a very enthusiastic tennis player and means business when he is on the courts. Matthias has been a wonderful addition to the team over the past 3 seasons and his game has improved tremendously and we are very proud of him. This season was a little challenging for Matthias because he played singles and doubles for the team and held a record of 4 wins and 2 losses which had a definite impact on our winning season.
