Syosset Tennis Named High School Tennis Team of the Year

Syosset High School’s Tennis team has been named Long Island High School Tennis Team of the Year by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). This award is given to the Long Island public or private high school that best exemplifies sportsmanship and encourages growth of the game by ensuring that young players experience the fun of representing their school tennis teams and participate in community service events.

This honor comes after a championship season for both the Boys and Girls teams. Syosset Girls went 10-1 last season as they secured their second Nassau County Championship in the last three seasons. Boys Tennis went 15-0 for the season and took home their third Long Island Championship in the last four seasons. 

In addition, students Ansh Chadha, Alex Ho, Eesha Kaushik, Evan Lee and Nikhil Shah were named All County athletes. Students Alexa Brecher, Brian Gao, Jeremy Levine and Rachel Lin were named All State.

Syosset Tennis Coach Shai Fisher, who was also named Newsday’s Coach of the Year, accepted the award at the USTA’s Annual Awards Dinner in September. He credited the award to his students’ dedication to their sport, even through a pandemic. “It is a testament to the hard work they have put in year-round, both on and off the courts,” said Fisher.

The USTA is the national governing body for the sport of tennis whose ongoing mission is to promote and develop the sport’s growth on every level in the United States.
