After victories in the District and Regional Tournaments, the PC’s Boys team travelled to Orlando to compete for the State championship against seven other teams that had earned a spot in the finals. At the end of the elimination process, all PC’s singles players (Roy Lederman, Blaine Willenborg, Carlos de Bracamonte, Isaac Thylen and Josh Schneirov
) had advanced to the final round. The championship was clinched with a straight-set victory by the PC’s doubles team of Isaac Thylen
and Blaine Willenborg
over their Gulliver Prep opponents. Solid play by Co-captain Alex Jaffe
and eighth-grader Elliot Seckler
during Districts and Regionals contributed to the team’s success.
Earlier this month the Pine Crest Boys Varsity team had finished third in the National High School Team Championship played in Louisville, Kentucky.
