In high school tennis matches here Monday, Half Hollow Hills East, the defending county champion, bageled Ross 7-0 and Southampton edged East Hampton 4-3.
Ross’s coach, Vinicius Carmo, who saw the rout coming, lamented the fact that his Ross Tennis Academy students were not allowed by Section XI to play in league matches. “With them,” said Carmo, “we would have won.”
In a nonleague match played at Ross Saturday, Northport prevailed 4-3.
Michelle Kennedy, East Hampton’s coach, said that first doubles proved to be the deciding point in the match with Southampton. The Mariners’ team won it in a third set tiebreaker. East Hampton’s top three singles players lost, though the Bonackers had wins at fourth singles (by default), and at second (Nicky Neubert and Peter Davis) and third (Juan Agudelo and Max Snow) doubles.
Neubert-Davis won 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, and Agudelo and Snow won 7-6, 6-3.
