LYNNFIELD — The 2016 season has come to a close for the boys’ tennis team. The Pioneers finished the season with a 5-11 record.
“I am very pleased with the improvements each player has made throughout the season,” said Pioneers head coach Joe Dunn.
The Pioneers fell 3-2 to Maimonides May 26.
Sophomore captain Colin Lamusta won his first singles match in two sets, 7-5, 7-6 (8-6).
The first doubles team featuring sophomores Andrew Seelig and Max Rothermund won their match in two sets, 6-2, 7-5.
Senior captain Danny Bronshvayg dropped his second singles match in straight sets, 0-6, 0-6.
Sophomore Arlex Correa lost his third singles match in two sets, 5-7, 1-6.
In second doubles, freshman Michael Gentile and sophomore Joe Pavao lost their match in two sets, 4-6, 5-7.
The Pioneers will be saying goodbye to senior captains Bronshvayg and Joshua Book as well as senior Kyle Prouty this spring. While all three seniors will be missed, the locals have a strong nucleus returning next season including Lamusta, Seelig, Rothermund, Correa, Gentile and Pavao.
“We have a young, athletic team that wants to continue to develop their tennis skills for a winning season next year,” said Dunn.
