The Panthers had a very successful season, finishing 6-2 in league play and 7-3 overall. They ended the season by earning their unprecedented fifth straight NYCAL Tournament title.
Singles players Del Schunk ’16 at #1, George Allen ’17 at #2 and Jaime Gomez-Sotomayor-Roel ’18 at #3 anchored the team, with George and Del earning medals in the tournament.
Doubles teams Oliver Obeid ’20 and Calvin Sherman ’19 playing as #1 doubles won a medal in the tournament. William Abelt ’15 and Peter Florescu ’15 playing as # 2 doubles evolved their play consistently throughout the season, culminating with their last tournament match victory to secure the title for Browning by one point.
Each of the alternate players, Teddy Florescu ’18, Grant Thompson ’18 and Sharif “Reef” Nsouli ’20, gained valuable match experience and contributed to the team’s success.
Del Schunk earned the MVP award for his fifth straight undefeated season in league play, and Oliver Obeid earned the Rookie of the Year award for his multiple victories in both doubles and singles.
Above all, our captains Peter Florescu ’15 and William Abelt ’15 led by example, with our players exhibiting respect for the game through their sportsmanship all season. Thank you to the Browning community for their support.–Coach Klein
