BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Gov. Livingston Boys Tennis looks to have a competitive team this year with the addition of sophomore Tyler Wu moving into first singles and junior Chris Yang sliding into the second position.
"We look to have a very strong team with a great top two, a very consistent number three and some powerful and experienced doubles teams," said Coach Bill Meakem.
Wu, a young newcomer, is not showing signs of nerves leading into the first match in the number one singles spot. -- "It's just another match," said Wu with confidence. Time will tell if Wu's USTA experience has prepared him with the mental toughness to handle the first singles role -- this is Wu's first experience of team play.
"Looks like a very competitive year for GL Tennis," said Meakem. "Wu, should be an outstanding 1-2 punch."
Meakem had two very consistent players battling for third singles. Junior Evan DiPietro, currently holds onto the third position.
Last year's second and third singles players senior Jensen Butler and senior Colin Lerch will team up at first doubles; and senior Lee Sport and junior Josh Stern in second doubles.
"Westfield will still be the class of the county and conference, but we should be competitive with them and should challenge the rest of the county for second," said Meakem.
