The Randolph boys’ tennis team captured a 5-0 victory over Abington Tuesday, improving to 15-0 and securing the longest winning streak in the team's history.
The Blue Devils’ 15-0 streak is a marked improvement over last season’s 9-9 record. Coach Eddie Weiand attributes the team’s new found success to strong leadership and team building.
“We have a number of seniors that have provided great leadership," Weiand said. "We have three tri-captains that have produced an extreme team with an unselfish attitude."
Indeed, Randolph’s tri-captains lead by example. Donald Do is 10-3 playing second singles. Captain Vu Trinh is 12-0 with his doubles partner, Robinson Vuong, and captain Phu Nguyen is 14-0 with his doubles partner Brian Nguyen.
“They make each other better throughout the season as well as the offseason,” said Weiand.
During the winter, the trio of captains led the team to shovel snow off the courts to get in preseason workouts.
“With three matches to go, we’re hoping to go 18-0. It would be a real accomplishment,” said Weiand.
