Great Neck South moved to .500 on the season following a convincing 7-0 win over Valley Stream Central in Conference I-A play on Thursday afternoon. The Rebels were led by Landon Phillips, who defeated Adam Birch of the Eagles in third singles in straight sets 6-4, 6-3. Great Neck South now looks to build on this win as it has Wheatley and undefeated Cold Spring Harbor remaining on the schedule.

In Conference I-B, Roslyn traveled to Great Neck North to try and hold on to its second place position in the division. Roslyn disposed of Great Neck North 6-1 to keep pace with Syosset, as the doubles tandems continued to play well for Roslyn. At first doubles, Roslyn's Sangjin Song & Zachary Fu knocked off Matt Ahdoot & Alex Rahmani 7-5, 6-4, while Jake Gans and Justin Princer defeated Daniel Cohen and Alex Ahdoot 6-3, 6-4. Gans & Princer remain undefeated on the season at second doubles and have been a major reason for Roslyn's success. Jake Lindenman beat Simon Kasfi at second singles in straight sets 6-2, 7-5 to secure the victory for Roslyn, who hosts Manhasset this afternoon.

Carle Place snapped its two-game losing streak as it hosted Hicksville in a Conference III-A showdown. Carle Place swept all seven matches to notch the 7-0 victory, with the closest match coming in first doubles. After dropping the first set, Carle Place’s first doubles team of Jack DrFrisco & Andrew Yeung battled back to win the final two sets over Hicksville’s Akash Jha & Sai Srinivas to win the match 5-7, 6-3, 6-2.

Also in Conference III-A play, the Mepham Pirates remained undefeated as it took out Oyster Bay 6-1. Mepham now has three games left in its season to try and finish without a loss, as they play Oyster Bay once again today, and Glen Cove and Hicksville next week to wrap up the season.

The Plainedge Red Devils also kept the dream of an undefeated season alive as it cruised past Lawrence in Conference IV-A action. The team of Dylan Pagan & Kyle Oleksak of Plainedge remained unbeaten in third doubles as they defeated Tom Borfitz & Denis Hickey of Lawrence 6-3, 6-1. Plainedge now has three matches left to try and stay undefeated, starting this afternoon when they travel to Clarke.
