Despite finishing last season with an 11-0 record, the Scranton Prep boys tennis team has some unfinished business: winning the team district title.
Their doubles team of Will Cognetti and Walker Temperton finished second in states last season, however Temperton graduated.
They return Will Cognetti, Keller McGurrin, and John-Carlon Cognetti.
They also have two promising newcomers in freshman Pete Kazmierczak (singles) and Tony Kutz (doubles).
Head coach Kathleen McKenna is hopeful that one of the singles players will win the district title and move on to states.
“They all have a good chance,” she said.
Despite losing several key members of the team, including Temperton, Jay Patel, Matt Hanahue, Connor Fitzsimmons and Alex Thomas, the team is off to a 6-0 start.
“We are much more team-oriented this year,” McKenna said. “They have a drive to succeed. The kids worked hard during the offseason and are committed to making fewer errors.”
McKenna added that the new league allignment is very popular among the players.
“They love the new league,” she said. “Instead of three divisions, there is one and everyone plays each other once. It’s much better competition and it’s good to see all the kids.”
The Cavaliers will host Dunmore April 18 at 4 p.m.
