The boys tennis team faced a hard lost against the West Potomac Wolverines, on March 30 at home. The boys have been on a losing streak, now making this lost their fourth one in a row ever since beating the South County Stallions on March 22.

Against the Wolverines the Atoms did unfortunately not win any of their six singles matches. Senior, Mohamed Elhag was one of the closest to winning a match, losing by a score of 11-9.

The team looks forward to working hard and improving before their next match against the Mount Vernon Majors, on April 4 on the road.

The boys tennis team has many in numbers and also a lot of experience to contribute from seniors who have been playing for almost 4 years now. The Atoms have recently been struggling with being consistent during matches, which causes them to make a lot of little mistakes.

“We are working on being more consistent every match so that we can limit the amount of mistakes we make overall as a team,” sophomore Cort Hollis said

The Atoms look to work hard on improving little mistakes in order to up the consistency.

Following their game on Tuesday the Atoms will go on to face two teams who they have already faced, the South County Stallions and the West Springfield Spartans.

“We are looking to snap our losing streak and pick up a win in one of our next matches,” Hollis said.

The boys continue to work hard and look to have more success in these up coming rematches.
