Arlington High School’s Sean Gorwara and Mark Cukaj qualified for their first state boys tennis tournament, defeating Mamaroneck’s Nick Lee and Sam McGrath 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 at the Section 1 tournament in Harrison.
“The smiles are huge,” said Arlington coach Gail Lynch of her team, headed to the state tournament in Queens May 28-30. “They’re just super excited. They had a very nervous tournament and they are a new team. They both can be quiet, but they finally started listening and they brought it.”
Gorwara and Cukaj fell in a Section 1 semifinal to Horace Greeley’s James and Jeremy Wei, 6-3, 6-4.
