In a rematch from last year’s championship, the William Floyd varsity girls tennis team, under the leadership of Coach Dave Pia, will battle Half Hollow Hills East today for the County Championship at Smithtown East. To get to the finals, the Colonials defeated Smithtown East (7-0) in the quarterfinals; and knocked off Ward Melville in the semifinals (4.5-2.5).
Congratulations are also in order for Kelci Henn, Lisa Lin, Kayla D’Addario and Antonette Viglione on earning All-State honors with outstanding performances at the Suffolk County Tennis Individual Tournament held earlier in October. Out of the 128 doubles teams (256 players) that participated in the Divisions and then the Counties, Kelci and Lisa advanced to the final and finished in second place. Kayla and Antonette finished in fourth place. Both tennis doubles teams finished undefeated in team play this year with a 16-0 record. William Floyd is the only team in New York State to have four All-State players represented at November’s State Tournament. Good Luck girls!
