Boys varsity tennis completes season with sixth place finish at the State Championships


Boys varsity tennis competed in Ann Arbor on Friday and Saturday in the State Finals. The team placed sixth overall but had some solid placements individually.

After winning their flight in Regionals, senior Advith Reddy and junior Chris Battiste advanced all the way into the semifinals at two doubles. This was a huge win for the Rangers, but the duo later fell to a very dominant University of Detroit Jesuit squad. Along with them was one doubles senior Ali Azeem and junior Jeremy James, who also lost to U of D Jesuit in the semifinals.

The singles for FHC were also outstanding at this weekend’s matches and showed up when it was needed. Senior Nick Sjolin was on a roll but had a very tough ending to his career after having to forfeit due to cramping. He worked very hard and was winning his match but was unable to continue. Freshman Sammy Yin lost in the second round to the three seed in a very tough three-set match. He was very impressive out on the court and will be very lethal in the years to come for FHC tennis.

Overall, it was a solid weekend for the Rangers and one they shall never forget. The boys worked extremely hard throughout the season and will live as one of the better FHC tennis teams in a while.
