On June 8, junior Ethan Nittolo defeated his opponent William Trang of Brooklyn Technical High School to claim the Mayor’s Cup singles championship. Out of a total of 128 competitors, Ethan outlasted all others by winning five matches.
Looking back, Ethan felt prepared going into the match. Regarding his competition for the finals, Ethan said, “He was a good player but I was confident that I was going to win comfortably.” He proved this by winning both of his sets 6-3 and 6-0, respectively, in the finals.
Winning Mayor’s Cup, a surreal experience, dubs Ethan the “Best in the City.” Ethan expressed his happiness, saying, “It was great. In my freshman year, I lost it in the quarterfinals, but this year, I wanted to win extremely badly, and it thankfully paid off.”
Also competing at Mayor’s Cup singles tournament was sophomore Daniel Corona, who said, “It’s great to have a teammate win. Since Ethan will be on our roster next year, the win is definitely a good sign.”
With a Mayor’s Cup championship marking the end of this season, the boys tennis team looks forward to the following season.
