Over the last several seasons, the team has had a large number of upperclassmen. This season, there is a smaller number of players, but the team is confident they will produce great results with these players.
The doubles teams will be very good, with Jimmy Gallagher and Jack Gorman at the number one spot. Gallagher said, “This is a much anticipated year for our team, especially after just falling short last year. However, my partner Jack Gorman and I are returning for one last shot at qualifying for the state finals.”
Jack Gorman is also looking forward to a productive year: “I am very excited to be a part of Brother Rice tennis this year. I think we can surprise a lot of people. My partner Jimmy Gallagher is a great player and I can’t think of anyone else to end my career with.”
Liam Millerick and Dan Mahoney will hold the number two doubles spot. Both doubles teams will be the one-two punch looking to qualify for state. Liam Millerick said, “I am going to give my best to winning every match.”
Junior Jeremy Tryban will be one of the underclassmen stepping up to fill in at number one singles. Tryban said, “I think that with our synergy we should be able to defeat teams with more players than us.”
The team will be working together to achieve the most learning possible and will measure their success in the growth that each player makes. Dan Rooney says, “I am itching to get back out on the court and finishing in the top four at Catholic league Championships.” The team will be practicing with real determination to improve, and together everyone will achieve more: such is their synergy.
