Through constant hard work and perseverance, both of the doubles pairs were able to achieve greatness.

“We were able to fulfill our goal for the season which made me incredibly proud. However, we have to make sure that we continue our success at the state tournament,” said Nikhil Grandhi, 11 who is playing doubles with Dylan Stern, 11.

Both teams are anxious for the tournament which starts on Fri, May 25.

“I think both teams are ready to have some success on the highest level in the state. Anything can happen up there,” said Josh Goodman, 12.

The doubles state tournament has sixteen teams from all over the state and they are all the top teams from their area.

“It will be interesting to see how the top players in the state will play. I think I will have a great experience to go up and watch the state tournament for the first time,” said Goodman.
