James Ignatowich’s success in regional United States Tennis Association junior tournaments has provided compelling proof of the Ross School Tennis Academy’s effectiveness.
A win over Harborfields here Friday would apparently have assured the East Hampton High School girls lacrosse team of a home game in the opening round of the playoffs, but it was not to be, as the Tornadoes wound up on the long end of a 9-5 score.
Afterward, Matt Maloney, East Hampton’s coach, agreed that the loss “wasn’t the end of the world, though it would have been nice to win. . . . We need a couple more wins, but to be two games above .500 with four games to go is a good place to be.”
