A Kind Of Common Opponent Of Red Bank Catholic Is Bishop Eustace ... Read Between The Box Scores

We play Red Bank Catholic on Thursday at noontime at River Winds Racquet Club in West Deptford. This time last season Bishop Eustace played them in the first round of the playoffs. There are two box scores below, one of that playoff match and a recent box score where RBC played Rumson a couple weeks ago. You'll see some different names in each but some are the same.

Tomorrow if it rains I'll have a short indoor practice for Terry, Frank, Mark, Nick, Marcos, John and Mitchel. We'll have it in the gym and it'll run 245-330.

All members of the tennis team are allowed to attend the playoff match on Thursday at River Winds. Please print out the permission slip below and have it signed by a parent. We will be dismissed at 11pm and the match will start at noontime.

I also put a Haddonfield v Pennsville box score, wherein a number of our team members have played both. Terry won against Pennsville's first and Mark lost in a close match to their 3rd singles.

I thought the recent Cherry Hill East/Shawnee match was interesting. We have played East, wherein Shawnee is ranked considerably higher than the Cougars, but played them close from 3 down and won both doubles positions. We were going to play Shawnee but as you know now that match was canceled.

The last one is fascinating. I see that a 6-11 Oakcrest team could beat St Augustine's 3rd singles, a fill-in, but not a JV fill-in, a member of their 2nd varsity doubles team. Christopher Polizzi has played about half of Prep's matches at 2nd doubles this season. The doubles matches were also quite competitive. The Prep drops off a cliff after 2nd singles, and we'll get another shot at them soon.
