HGVT at Federation Tournament
After winning NYSAIS for the first time in school history, the doubles team of Sadie Nipon and Maya Miller participated in another first: The New York State Doubles Federation tournament.
Only four teams qualified (the champions of the four different leagues – NYSAIS, PSAL, CHSAA and NYSPHSAA) for the tournament, which turned out to be an excellent display of high quality tennis.
In the first round, Sadie and Maya played against a doubles team from Brooklyn Tech. Although tough opponents, Sadie and Maya’s power, smart play, and team chemistry were too much for the pair from Brooklyn. They went on to win 6-1, 6-3. In the finals, Hackley faced off against an extremely strong team from The Wheatley School in Long Island. And although the Hackley duo fell short, Sadie and Maya played some of their best tennis of the season and went down fighting. Overall, it was an amazing tournament for the girls, as they played well, had fun, and came away with an impressive second place finish at Federations!
