With poor weather conditions, there was a small slate of matches in New York City on Wednesday afternoon, but two of the city’s top girls highs school teams brought their undefeated records to the courts, as Beacon and Bronx Science met at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club.
And for the third straight year, Bronx Science got the better of Beacon. The Wolverines moved to 6-0 on the season with a 4-1 victory.
Bronx Science played without top singles player Brianna Williams, to expose some of its younger players to top competition, and it proved that it has the depth to make up for that.
Sarah Rahman stepped into the first singles role, and defeated Beacon’s Alexus Gill, 8-1.
Two freshmen then answered the bell for Bronx Science. Perene Wang came up big at second singles, knocking off Aleksandra Bekirova 8-1, and Christina Huynh completed the singles sweep for the Wolverines, downing Michelle Khaimov 8-0 to seal the deal.
At first doubles, freshman Sofie Levine paired up with Cassie Tian to beat Maria Kogarova and Sophia Prudhomme 8-3. Beacon’s point came from the second doubles pair of Andrea and Natasha Osses-Konig, who led 7-5 over Alana Rosenthal and Klara Wichterle, before the match had to be concluded.
Both teams will play Eleanor Roosevelt in their next contests.
