For the second year in a row, both teams reached the Division A championship at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing.
And once again, they both lost to the same opponent from last year — Beacon.
The boys team struggled throughout the best of five matches and wasn’t able to capture a single game against Beacon, losing 5-0 at the championship Tuesday.
“It was a good season,” boys coach Peter Ciorciari said. “I have a great bunch of kids.”
The girls were also dominated (4-1), except for their ace, the PSAL’s top-rated girl tennis player—junior Sabrina Xiong.
Xiong handily defeated her opponent (6-1, 6-2) for the team’s only win.
Despite the team’s loss, Xiong was happy they had another good season and overall finish.
“It’s always just an honor to be in the finals,” Xiong said. “Of course it’s disappointing, because who wants to lose?”
