First singles player, Josh Levine of Cold Spring Harbor thought he would be getting a little more competition from his match against Roslyn at Garden City High School on Thursday. “I was ready to play Austin (Blau) but they told me he had gotten sick and wouldn’t be available. So I ended up playing their alternate instead.” Blau's replacement, Jeff Cohen, tried hard and got Levine into some long baseline rallies, but in the end, Cohen just couldn't overcome Levine's many weapons in losing 0-6,1-6.

To Cold Spring Harbor and Syosset, the prospect of facing off against the opposing school was overshadowed by the daunting task of beating the brutal wind that ripped through the tarp-less fences surrounding the courts. It was clear before the match that neither club was as prepared for the battle against Mother Nature as they were for the one against the other school.
