Despite a lot of stops and starts, a canceled match, and a move indoors, James Finnigan watched his St. Mary's Men's Tennis Teammates get off to a great start in 2021, sweeping St. Thomas 7-0 with six straight-set victories in singles.
Finnigan and his teammates started the morning at Prairie View A&M, but rain delays forced a cancellation. The team then traveled to St. Thomas and completed the match at the Giamalva Racket Club.
"Today was a day of patience for both teams," said Head Coach Bill Macom. "After such a long layoff, they did a great job keeping focused. Each time back on the court, after a rain delay, we got a little better. Fortunately, across town, the Giamalva Racket Club was kind enough to stay open late for us to get our match in with St. Thomas."
In the first match for St. Mary's since March 8th, 2020 the doubles teams set the tone for the match.
