Season Recap: Boys Varsity Tennis

The Boys Varsity Tennis team started the season ready to grow and improve, with the goal of having a winning season. After graduating multiple seniors last year, younger players looked to step into leadership roles and higher-competing positions this season. 

“We have a very young but talented team, and I knew we could have a winning season,” Coach Haley Bougher said. “The boys worked hard and had great focus all season, and we achieved that goal. I'm really proud of our team. We have a really great group of boys that are talented on and off the court. We have a lot of fun at practice, but they can focus in and produce wins at the same time.”

The team had to start each match this season at a deficit, as they were one player short. Even with starting each match down one point, the team was able to rally and still have a winning season. The Gryphons also achieved a third-place finish in the conference, a great achievement for such a young team. 

“The biggest challenge for me this season was playing against really good players, or hitting harder but consistent against easier players,” Grade 10 student Michael Kreutz said. “I played worse against worse players because I played way too safe.”

The Gryphons will have plenty of time to improve through the next few years. With only one senior graduating and the addition of new high school players, the future is bright for the Boys Varsity Tennis team!

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
