Having earned a first round bye, boys tennis begins their playoff run this afternoon. Auburn is ranked #3 with a 15-1 record in the regular season. They will face #6 Littleton (13-3) at home beginning around 3:30pm.

Although upsets certainly do occur in the tournament, the Rockets have been nearly flawless this spring. Out of the 80 matches played, only 7 losses were recorded.

The biggest obstacles should be #2 Bromfield (19-1) and #1 Quaboag (18-0). The Cougars accounted for Auburn’s only loss, but that was a close 3-2. A rematch could well end in favor of the Rockets.

Today’s slideshow is from Auburn’s recent 5-0 victory over Leicester. Good luck!
