With a 4-1 win against Northbridge on Saturday morning, the #1 ranked Auburn’s boys tennis progressed in the MIAA Central Division 3 Tournament. They face #5 Whitinsville Christian today at 3:00pm at Auburn High.
All singles players won in two sets: Albert Smreczak 6-1,6-0; Dom Smreczak 6-4, 6-4; and Alex Mularski 6-1, 6-0. In first doubles, Khan Shairani and Jack Leger lost a tight match 7-6, 7-5. Shairani played with an ankle issue that should feel better today.
Second doubles partners Connor Aubuchont and Kyle Novakoski lost their first set 7-6, but rebounded to win in two 6-4 sets. Coach Pat Dufour said, “Second doubles pulled it together and played much better in the second and third sets. We’re going to need both groups to play well if we are going to beat Whitinsville Christian Monday. We need to keep the momentum going.”
