Eagles’ tennis solid at halfway mark
The boys team is 5-2 for the season, following a 5-0 victory over Dexter on May 6. Top singles player Johnny Xue posted an 8-0 win, as did number two Alex Heilner, who also won against MDI on May 3 in a match the Eagles lost 3-2. Apart from that loss and an early season defeat (3-2) to Ellsworth, the boys look strong, with 5-0 wins against Sumner on April 29 and Orono on April 26.
The girls have posted similar results so far, with losses also to MDI (4-1) and Ellsworth (5-0). Number two singles player Maggie Keating won both her matches.
The teams travel to Deer Isle-Stonington on May 8—in previous matches on April 24, girls and boys posted crushing wins (5-0) against the Island teams.
