Franklin High School
The Rocks boys tennis team traveled to Livonia Franklin to take on the short-handed Patriots. The Livonians defaulted their 4and 5 doubles matches, so the Rocks played mostly JV guys to get varsity experience.
1s Eric Liu once again had little trouble disbursing his opponent, Eric Liberati (LF) 6-1, 6-0.
2s Ajay Bharathan (S), normally playing 4s, enjoyed a nice victory over Stephen Lai (LF) 6-2, 6-2.
3s Freshman Parker Henderson (S) was the lone casualty, fighting hard to go down in 3 sets to John Pokryfky (LF) 5-7, 6-4, 10-6.
4s Abdul Junaid (S) played a long match but emerged victorious over Nick LaLonde (LF) 6-4, 7-6
1d Nihal Lingam/Rahul Rao (S) made quick work of Hunter Mastroionni/Adam Klaus (LF) 6-2, 6-1
2d Nathan Prieskorn/Parth Narang (S) were off the court quickly winning 6-2, 6-0 over Nick Netschke/Tiernan Smith (LF).
3d Ini Rajeswaran/Ray Kim (S) bested Jad Sabbagh/Diego Sanabria (LF) 6-1, 6-0.
