The state champions from 2017 continued their dominant win streak of three wins in a row, winning by a total of 9 sets to 0 against  Washington Lee High School on Tuesday. Originally slated for Thursday, the game got cancelled and moved on to a sunny but cold Tuesday afternoon.

For the individual match ups, McLean was represented by Andrew Leng, Brandon Winegarden, Benjamin Brooks, Bryce Liquerman, Matthew Johansen and Harsh Dhayal. For the double match ups, McLean was represented by the pairs of Ethan Magne and Ian Kuester, Dhayal and Winegarden and Oscar Tidd and Tommy Lam. 

Dhayal who is a sophomore,  won his match from 10 games to 0, credited his win to his focus and determination. 

“Tennis is all a mental game, sometimes its not about who hits harder or faster. I pride myself mostly on the attitude I take to the match, I stay zoned in, I stay serious and I go in to win,” Dhayal said.

Junior Sean Wei, a member of the team believed that the team would continue their dominant performances for many years to come.

“This tennis team has been historically dominant in our district and this year is no exception. We’re a confident team that has been winning our matches and I have no doubt that this trend will continue in the ensuring years,” Wei said. 

The team is evidently younger compared to previous years, but many members of the team remained confident in the team’s development and goals for the future. 

Junior Ethan Bacica who is also a member of the team echoed similar sentiments as his fellow team members that despite their young age, with determination the team would still be able to remain competitive for the district and state tournaments. 

“We’re a developing team, but I think with hard work we will be able to make a run in districts and hopefully make it to the regional tournament,” Bacica said. 

The team won all their individual matches in dominant fashion, with scores of 10-0, 10-0, 10-1, 10-4, 10-1 and 10-3. Additionally, the team won all their double matches with scores of 8-1, 8-2 and 8-2. 

After dropping a close game against Yorktown High School on Wednesday, the team looks to bounce back at home against Herndon High School  on Friday, March 29th.
