Last year, the boys' tennis season – Ray Knight's coaching debut at GSB – had its share of major disturbances due to the pandemic. "Just as I started in the spring with the boys' team, we got shut down," he said. "We were very limited with what we could do."
As Mr. Knight prepares for the start of spring sports, he is confident the boys' team will be strong. "There's a lot of potential and willingness in the players," he said. "I couldn't be any happier with what I saw in their abilities. My anticipation is high."
The Middle School boys’ tennis program provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn the basics of the sport and develop a love for tennis. This team serves as an important foundation to students as they prepare for the varsity team in the Upper School.
The boys’ tennis team has been one of the most successful programs at Gill over the last decade. It has won four conference titles (2007-2011), two Prep B championships (2009 2011) and were twice crowned Non-Public B South Sectional champions (2012, 2013). With the Knights qualifying for the Non-Public B State tournament the last two years, the program looks to continue its success.
