The Woodstock Academy boys’ tennis team had a chance to earn a share of the ECC Div. II regular season title.
Unfortunately, Stonington stood in its way. And the Bears have the Centaurs number.
“They were the team we were shooting to beat this year,” said assistant tennis coach Siana Green said.
It was a hurdle that Woodstock Academy just could not clear.
They handed the Centaurs a 5-2 loss at the Pomfret School courts May 18 and took the Division II title back to Stonington with them.
“It’s just trying to be more consistent,” Green said. “Talent-wise, we hit the ball as hard as they do. Every game was neck-and-neck this time, it was just who finished the point.”
More often than not, it was Stonington who accomplished that.
But there were positive signs for Woodstock Academy.
“It was so much better than when we played them a few weeks ago. We got pretty smoked down there, in regards to how the games went. In this case, we had a couple of three-set matches,” Green said.
The Centaurs did give the Bears some cause for concern,
David Fleck, the top singles player for the Centaurs, won his first set with Jake Stiger, 7-6 (7-4). Luigi Boselli came up with a 6-4 victory at No. 4 singles over Nathan Gonzalez.
There were also wins on the doubles side with the second doubles team of Jai Abrams and Connor Quinn picking up a 7-5 victory.
Evan Haskins and Joe Zhou also won their first set, 6-1.
Had it stayed that way, Woodstock Academy would have prevailed, 4-3.
“The tables turned in the second set,” Green said.
Boselli managed to win again, 6-2, to take the win at No. 4 singles on Senior Day.
The third doubles team of Haskins and Zhou also finished off their competition with a 6-1 victory.
“Every time I looked down to them, they were always up. I knew I didn’t have to worry about them,” Green said.
But the rest of the matches didn’t go Woodstock Academy’s way.
Fleck ended up losing in three sets as did Abrams and Quinn.
The Centaurs finished the regular season May 20 with a match against Norwich Free Academy at Norwich Tech. The match ended too late for this edition.
The Centaurs went into that final match of the year with a 13-4 record. “That’s a huge improvement from last year,” Green said.
The Centaurs finished 10-9 last year and 7-9 in 2017.
Due to the spate of recent weather woes, the Centaurs played only two other matches last week and they were both in the same day.
The Centaurs downed New London and Fitch by the same 6-1 score May 15 and built a six-match win streak which was ended by the Bears May 18.
The nightcap with the Falcons was not easy. All of the matches were rather lengthy including Fleck’s 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 1 singles over Max Cartier. Riley Douglas was stretched at second singles to beat Aidan Sullivan, 7-6, 6-2.
Doubles weren’t much better. The second doubles team of Abrams and Quinn had to go to tiebreaker to post a 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 win. Douglas had a trying day all around. He also battled the New London’s Wesly Paulo in the first match of the day, managed to pull out a 6-2, 4-6, (10-8) win and sent the Centaurs on to the battle with Fitch.

It was a relatively short regular season for the Woodstock Academy boys’ track team.
It consisted of just three ECC Div. I meets and a couple of Invitationals.
The season, as a whole, comes to a close shortly.
The ECC championship meet, occurred May 20 and was too late for this edition.
The Centaurs will finish up with the Class MM state championship meet on May 29 in Middletown.
“We definitely need to work on the scheduling next season,” said Woodstock Academy boys’ coach Peter Lusa. “We need to fit in some meets with Killingly or some other local stuff. We want to have Pomfret, Marianapolis, maybe Tourtellotte, come in and have some kind of Northeast regional meet. We need more, local competition.”
Woodstock Academy ended its short dual-meet season with a 111-49 loss at East Lyme May 14.
“It was a cold, rainy day so it wasn’t a great day for the sprinters or the jumpers. None of them did as well as they thought but the distance guys came through and ran pretty well. When I asked for a show of hands on the bus, a lot of kids had personal bests. We’re toward the end of the season. We’re getting into shape and we’re peaking when we need to,” Lusa said.
The final boys’ meet of the season was supposed to be at home, but due to the wetness of the throwing areas, it had to be shifted to East Lyme.
“The upside of that is that the boys got to go to East Lyme where the ECCs will be. We got a chance to see the location and got a feel for the layout. We got kids to start to visualize what they need to do and where they need to go,” Lusa said.
The Centaurs (0-3, 0-3) did bring home some first-place finishes from the shoreline.
Kenneth Birlin won the 800 meter race in 2:04.8.
The senior is one of four athletes who have qualified for state competition.
The last chance to qualify for the MM competition was at the ECC championship meet.
Lucas Couture captured a first-place finish at East Lyme in the 110 Hurdles and qualified for state competition at the same time by finishing in 17 seconds flat.
Couture also finished second in the pole vault where he has already qualified for the states.
Ethan Aspiras has also qualified in the two mile. Danylo Ntamwemizi is flirting with a state berth. The senior also took home a first in the shot put with a throw of 40-feet, 9-inches against the Vikings. That left him just 3 inches shy of qualifying for the state meet.
Eric Phongsa took second place in both the 100 and 200-meter races against East Lyme while Nathan Craig was runner up in the 300-meter hurdles and the triple jump. Jackson Dias was second in the high jump.
