After getting swept 7-0 by Byram Hills twice in the regular season, little did anyone expect a competitive Section 1 Small Schools girls tennis tournament finals. Switching from a three singles/four doubles format to three singles/two doubles for postseason, Edgemont gave Byram a run in a 3-…
Dani Friedman was in eighth grade when she made Edgemont’s varsity girls tennis team. As a senior, five seasons — and five postseason appearances — later, she certainly leaves a lasting impression on the program.
Kimi Krasner’s biggest victory came when she tried out for and made the Edgemont girls tennis team this fall. After missing last season with a broken knee, which was later followed by a broken foot, she didn’t step back on the court again until June of this year.
With 11 players competing in the Section 1 singles and doubles tournaments, Edgemont had its full lineup represented. Two doubles teams made it deep into the draw, while many other teams and players were knocked out in competitive matches.
A seventh straight league title and another season of competitive crossover matches against the best teams in the section has Edgemont boys tennis set up well for postseason with the entire starting lineup qualifying, according to coach Mark Romney.
With only two seniors consistently in the starting lineup — Ryan Ho at first singles and Tyler Griffith at second doubles — and the Edgemont boys tennis team competing well against other top teams in Section 1, there is a reason to be excited about the program. In addition, the team is undef…
Alexa Goldberg found her surroundings very fitting on Tuesday afternoon. For her first match as a high school tennis coach, the 2014 Edgemont grad was at Scarsdale High School coaching her alma mater.
With wins in 3 of 4 tiebreaks, the Scarsdale boys tennis team survived its first challenge of the season, topping Edgemont 5-2. Both teams came in with uncertainty — Scarsdale returning three players and Edgemont being without 2 of their top 3 players — and both teams showed they have what i…
Katie Feinstein may have spent her formative years as a three-sport standout at Edgemont High School, but it was coaching tennis the last nine years at her alma mater where she truly “grew up.” Not only did she learn a lot coaching tennis for nine years, but she changed careers, got married,…
The match that ended the Edgemont girls tennis season was certainly unique as junior Dani Friedman faced off against freshman Nishka Daga, a pair of teammates vying for third place in the Section 1 South Westchester Large Schools Regional singles tournament.
Nishka Daga achieved something that doesn’t often happen during a high school tennis season: she defeated an opponent she had lost to earlier in the season.
With five All-Section players graduating, including a top 16 New York State doubles team of Olga Lew-Kiedrowska and Ariella Zagorsky, the Edgemont girls tennis team certainly has a new look this year.
Between the Section 1 Conference I and III tournaments and the first day of the Section 1 tournament on Wednesday, there’s been a lot of excitement for Scarsdale and Edgemont.
With two losses going to third set tiebreakers and another at 7-5, 6-4, the Edgemont girls tennis team gave Harrison a run for its money in the Section 1 team tournament quarterfinals. In the end, however, Harrison won 4-1, with two matches unfinished with the match clinched.
Since the moment she walked off the court at the Billie Jean King USTA National Tennis Center on Sept. 18, Edgemont sophomore Dani Friedman had Oct. 4 circled on her calendar. Following a 6-4, 4-6, 10-8 loss to Bronxville’s Katie Formato at third singles, Friedman was seeking redemption in t…
Some years — like last year — when circumstances dictate, one of the great Edgemont traditions takes a hiatus. But when the tennis team has its mostly annual match at the Billie Jean King USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, it’s an experience like no other.
A large rock sits outside the tennis courts at Scarsdale High School with a plaque commemorating the girls tennis team’s decade-long dominance within Section 1, a 117-match winning streak that stretched from 1990-2000.
Katie Feinstein didn’t hesitate to take three seventh-graders on the varsity tennis team at Edgemont. In 2014, Feinstein’s third year of coaching at her alma mater, she knew they’d be just fine. After all, the 1999 graduate and state doubles qualifier was also a six-year varsity tennis playe…
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.
