Roslyn defeated Manhasset 6-1 on Wednesday afternoon, as Angelina Remnek got things started with a straight-sets victory at second singles, and a key win coming from Joselle Mashkevich and Sydney Rothschild at third doubles as the duo came back to win 4-6, 6-2, 10-6.
But it was bigger than just the results on court as this was Roslyn’s “Go Gold” match to raise awareness of pediatric cancer.
“We played well today. Manhasset is always a well-coached and tough opponent, and we are happy to come away with a win,” said Roslyn head coach Brian Hoffner. “But I’m most proud of our girls for coming together as a team to help raise awareness for pediatric cancer at today’s match. It is something that they are passionate about and it was great to see them take the lead. It was a great day to be a coach.”
Sarah Faber, a Roslyn captain who won her match at third singles 6-2, 6-3, was especially proud of both her team as well as Manhasset.
The Roslyn and Manhasset teams wore gold ribbons in their hair in honor of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.
“I would like to thank the Roslyn and Manhasset varsity tennis teams for participating in our ‘Go Gold’ match. Pediatric cancer has touched the lives of many people in my life and it is up to us to spread awareness,” said Faber. “After working at Sunrise Day Camp this summer, I find it is very important to help these kids in any way we can, and we are able to do our part by ‘going gold’ in September for Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.”
