Newburgh Free Academy’s Dennis Maher has a problem, that a lot of boys’ tennis coaches would love to have.
Newburgh will have its No. 1 singles player, junior Dennis Sult, a two-time Section 9 finalist, back for its match against Washingtonville Monday. Sult missed the team’s first two matches with an ankle injury. Freshman Daniel Parris, who was 1-1 at first singles, junior Jacques Laine and senior Vincent Diulio should round out Newburgh’s singles lineup. But, in what order will they play?
“It’s a tough question that I’ve been wrestling with,” Maher said. “Danny is playing well. Jacques and Vince been there the last few years. I haven’t officially decided what to do yet. It’s a good (problem) to have.”
Newburgh’s lineup is so deep that senior Joe Borden, an experience varsity player, is competing at second doubles. Seventh-graders Tyler Reede and Jarrett Monte are playing first doubles.
