On Thursday, November 5th, at the indoor courts of the Cunningham Tennis Center, Bronx Science Girls swept the New York City individual finals in tennis!
Junior Sarah Rahman ('17) captured the PSAL Individual singles championship, winning matches 6-2, 6-0.
"Sarah's growth has been steady since she came back to tennis in her freshman year," said Bronx Science head coach Jeff Menaker. "Her biggest improvement in the last year has been the serve. I see it as a weapon now. She hits a very clean ball and she's able to do that from everywhere on the court. She sees the court extraordinarily well in reading the ball and reacting to it."
Freshmen Perene Wang ('19) and Christina Huynh ('19) won the doubles championship. In doubles, the top-seeds Wang and Huynh outlasted second-seeds Alexus Gill and Michelle Khaimov of Beacon 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 to win the city title.
The top-seeded Rahman, a junior, didn’t lose a game in neither the quarterfinal nor the semifinal rounds, to set up a finals match with third-seed Nicole Stay of Francis Lewis. Stay won only two games and lost all sets.
Congratulations to Coach Menaker, to all of our Tennis kids, and especially to Rahman, Wang, and Huynh on making us all so proud!
