Undefeated MVRHS tennis tops Cape Cod Academy


Vineyarder tennis teams continued their early-season dominance in their debut season in Cape and Islands League play. The girls are 4-0 and the boys 3-0 after wins at Cape Cod Academy on Tuesday.

No. 1 Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) girls singles player Kelly Klaren defeated Marena Gardella, 6-0, 6-0. No. 2 Vineyarder singles player Victoria Scott beat Lilly Shanahan, also 6-0, 6-0. Third singles was a forfeit win for the Vineyard.

MVRHS first doubles duo Molly Pogue and Chesca Quinlan-Potter defeated Tania Weiland and Maria Weyland, 6-0, 6-0, and Alexandra Rego and Tessa Hammond defeated Kelly Wyeth and Yoana Doklova, also 6-0, 6-0.

“The team is playing well. They haven’t lost a set so far this season,” first-year coach Chris Scott said of his 12-member squad. Cape Cod Academy (CCA) fielded only six players on Tuesday, thus forfeiting third singles and third doubles to the Vineyarders, in accordance with Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association rules. Girls play next on Thursday at home against St. John Paul II (SJP II) at 4 pm.

In boys’ singles play, Chris Ferry defeated CCA’s Sam Shanahan, 6-1, 6-0; Max Potter defeated Dylan Kostovick, 6-0, 6-0; and Eric Reubens deated A.J. Lusty, 6-1, 6-1.

In doubles, the Vineyard’s Owen Favreau and Spencer Pogue won 6-2, 6-1, over Richard Leedham and Eli Sorenti-Burns, and David Krauthamer and Ben Belisle lost a tiebreaker match to T.J. Yeomens and Anthony Mooring. The boys play next on Thursday at home, also against SJP II, at 3 pm.
