Emery/Weiner Brings Home Fifth Straight Tennis Title
The Emery/Weiner School’s boys’ varsity tennis team brought home the School’s fifth consecutive state championship recently. The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools tournament was the most challenging yet for Emery/Weiner – previously, the schools in this league had been divided into six divisions, and this year TAPPS had consolidated the schools into five.
“The competition in TAPPS private school tennis has greatly improved over the six years
Emery/Weiner has competed,” Eric Streisfeld, Emery/Weiner’s tennis coach, said. “To claim five championships in six seasons is an unbelievable feat. Their hard work, commitment, and wonderful team camaraderie has made this possible.”
The Emery/Weiner boys varsity tennis team includes Josh Blumfield (11th grade), Andy Garden, (11th), Adam Gerger (11th), Cory Levy (11th), Max Kunik (12th), and Ryan Magaziner (11th).
Levy and Magaziner faced off in the state semifinals as singles players, and Levy emerged the victor. Levy lost to finals opponent Stuart Kenyon of Lutheran South. In the boys’ doubles competition, Kunik and Garden made it to the semi-finals, where they were defeated 7-6 by a team from Dallas Christian.
The girls varsity tennis team, made up of Ria Gerger (9th), Megan Rosenthal (10th), and Alexi Signet, also made a strong showing. Gerger, the youngest member of the team, made it to the singles quarterfinals at the tournament.
