It was a clean sweep for the John Jay High School boys tennis team on Monday in its first match of the season.

At first singles, John Jay’s David Taylor won the first two sets, 6-1, 6-0. Shiva Lakshmanan won second singles with 6-0 wins in the first two sets. Justin Yu took third singles, winning 6-1, 6-2.

Dimitri Petrakis and Kenny Steinberg defeated Beacon’s Michael Borrello and Tim Gleis at first doubles. Petrakis and Steinberg took the first set 6-1 and the second set 6-2.

“I think they’re a pretty good team,” Beacon coach Dave Ryley said of John Jay. “It was good to play against a strong team. We’re working on it.”

Weather pending, the Bulldogs (0-2) will compete again at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Carmel. John Jay (1-0) will face Our Lady of Lourdes on the road at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Jessica Lasaponara recorded four goals and four assists, but her Wappingers team lost a 14-12 decision against visiting Carmel.

“She’s kind of taken leadership on the field,” Wappingers coach Kerri McConville said of the junior. “She runs the attack, runs the defense. … She’s just a tremendous player.”

Jenna Fusco and Ellie Reck added two goals each, while Melissa Milohnic (one assist) Dana Volk, Danielle Digiacomo and Alyssa Carpenteri all scored once.

“Both teams played a great game today,” McConville said. “It was the first time we were out on the grass. Carmel played great defensively.”

Wappingers (0-2) visits Horace Greeley on Wednesday.

North Salem 16, Lourdes 8 — Meg Riccardi led the host Warriors with six goals. Cat Gallery chipped in with one goal and one assist, while Sophia Stanford rounded out the scoring with one goal.

Gabby Breault made 13 saves in front of the net.

“I think it was a good game for us,” Lourdes coach Mike Galantich said. “We played well, but North Salem is not going to make a lot of mistakes. It was a good game for us to learn where we are.”

The Warriors (1-1) pick up at Carmel at 4:30 p.m. Friday.

In the fifth inning the Blue Devils scored their only run. Justin Maldonado got a hit, stole second base and moved to third on a sacrifice. He then scored on a throwing error to first base.

“This was a step in the right direction,” Haldane coach Tom Virgadamo said. “We have a young team, but if we make the right plays, we’ll be alright in the long run.”

Haldane will travel to Peekskill at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.
