They’re this week’s Athletes Of The Week, but in their own circles, they’ve been dominating for much long than that.
While losing only seven games and not a single match all afternoon last Tuesday, the St. Francis girls’ tennis team defeated Mary Louis in the semifinals, and Notre Dame Academy in the finals, to win its 11th consecutive CHSAA state title and 159th consecutive match, last Tuesday afternoon, at the College of Staten Island.
The streak was the antithesis of what took place earlier in the week for head coach John Brennan’s team. Last Monday, Brennan’s team missed practice after the coach couldn’t locate the keys to the team bus. Once he did, the bus ran out of gas. Brennan’s team obviously hasn’t yet, with its long string of victories.
