The Edgemont Panthers went into the week looking to close out their fifth straight league title and head strong into the Section 1 Team Tournament.
In a trio of matches, 9-4 Edgemont boys tennis swept all 12 doubles matches, dropping only two singles matches to Bronxville along the way.
The Edgemont boys tennis team had a challenging week with two league opponents and one powerhouse. While the team came away 2-1 to improve to 6-4 overall, third set 10-point supertiebreaks continue to be shaky, despite being a strength in past years.
Just like Scarsdale, Edgemont coach Mark Romney schedules matches against the best teams in Section 1 each spring. The big difference is Edgemont is a small school, an underdog.
First, third and top eight. Section 1 surely represented well at the New York State doubles tournament over the weekend.
When Edgemont hosted Scarsdale Tuesday, it was more than just a boys’ tennis match. Edgemont coach Mark Romney took the opportunity to celebrate and honor the Steinbergs, a Scarsdale family of five who died in a plane crash along with seven others in Costa Rica last Dec. 31.
