NEWPORTâ€“In 2012, the North Country boys tennis team finished the year in fourth place in the Metro Conference, paced by a well rounded roster of experienced players that were committed to the program.
This year, the team will return a good portion of last year's group, while adding some new faces to the program.
"We have a good nucleus returning, and good contingent of freshman-first year players who are still working on their skills," said head coach Gary Atchinson.
The team already got their season underway as they squared off against MMU on Monday, losing the match 4-3.
Deslandes Blue Wave Tae Kwon Do Academy attended the Spring Championship tournament held at Johnson State College on April 6th. Nine students from the academy attended the tournament and represented their school proudly by bringing home a total of 19 medals and one Grand Champion Samurai Sword. Competitors range from the age of 4 to adult, proving it doesn't matter how old you are, anyone is capable of competing. Blue Wave students are trained to compete with respect and sportsmanship whether they win or lose, which they all displayed that day.
