Barrack vs. Germantown Friends

LOSE 0-5

Home game


 The Boys Junior Varsity Tennis Team suffered a tremendous defeat at the hands of the Germantown Friends. No single or double won more than 2 games over the course of two sets, a defeat comparable to those of the raids of the Northmen of the High Middle Ages. Charlie Foster, our handsome first singles player, lost both sets 1 game to 6, and our second doubles, The Great Ira Sheer and Matthias Langer The Noble, lost their first set 0 games to 6, but their second 2 to 6. While this defeat was certainly disheartening, our morale overcame! We celebrate our opportunity to compete. As Charles Dickens writes in A Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Our next match this coming Tuesday will prove to be another challenge, but we shall overcome.
