8. New guys just might work out
New coaches mean a period of adjustment, maybe a few struggles along the way. But in Weston, it meant state championships. On back-to-back days at Clark University, both the boys and girls tennis teams won Division 3 state titles. The boys, under rookie coach George Conlin, got things started with a 4-1 win over Bromfield. The girls, under first-year coach Bill Steinroeder, matched them, beating Hopedale, 4-1, the next day to make it a Wildcat sweep. Will Spector (right) led the boys with a 6-0, 6-1 at first singles while the girls were led by Abby Clarks 6-1, 6-0 win at first singles. It was a great start for the new guys.
