Season Recap: Boys Varsity Tennis

After graduating five seniors last year, the Boys Varsity Tennis Team was prepared for a challenging season with many new players working on improving their skills. 

“Our biggest challenge coming into the season was bouncing back after graduating five seniors last season,” Head Coach Haley Bougher said. “Most of our varsity spots were filled by freshmen this season which can be daunting going up against schools that often have JV and Varsity. We play the best of each team and have a very competitive schedule. Our young team held its own this season.”

With tennis being both a team and individual sport, players worked hard to improve their skills throughout the season - setting out to achieve a winning season with a very competitive schedule. 

The Gryphons were led by two returning seniors, Konrad Gossweiler and Will Longfellow.

“My biggest goal coming into the season was to win matches with [doubles partner] Konrad,” Longfellow said. “My biggest accomplishment this season was scoring points and performing well against Park Tudor.”

With their hard work this season, the Gryphons were able to rise to the challenge and finish the season with a winning record, with room to grow as many varsity players return next year.

“The boy's fought hard during the PAAC conference and our Sectional against Park Tudor,” Bougher said. “Both of these matches offered challenging competition, but the boys had great attitudes, played well, and had fun.”

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.
