TASIS had another successful trip to the SGIS Doubles Championship this year. On the opening day of play, our #1 girls team of Arina Kolesnikova '18 and Sonja Artemieva '19 was absolutely dominant, losing only two games en route to a 1st place finish in the tournament. In a more challenging draw, the #1 boys team of Nadir Timerbaev '19 and Kirill Krupenin '17 won their first two matches against ISL and LAS by scores of 8-6 and 8-3, respectively. In the semifinal, Timerbaev and Krupenin faced the eventual champions in LGB and fell, 3-8. Overall, it was a good day of fair play with TASIS winning more games than they lost (48-33).
The Sunday Mixed Doubles tournament featured another strong showing from the TASIS Tennis team. Two of our three teams earned medals and the overall game score for all three teams was a favorable 62-44. Against the top team from KLAS, the #3 TASIS team of Stanislava Kirsanova '19 and Sergio Vinas '20 performed bravely against more experienced counterparts, eventually falling 5-8. The #1 and #2 teams from TASIS won each of their matches handily before facing one another in the semifinal, with the #1 team of Kolesnikova and Timerbaev emerging victorious over Can Ferhatoglu '20 and Sonja Artemieva '19 by a score of 8-3. In the finals, Kolesnikova and Timerbaev couldn't quite get past a very strong team from ISL, falling 5-8 in the final. In the bronze medal match, however, Ferhatoglu and Artemieva performed very well, besting the top team from KLAS by a convincing mark of 8-2. In the end, TASIS occupied two of three spots on the podium and represented themselves very well.
The TASIS tennis team heads into its final week looking to build on its success at SGIS with a match against ASM on Thursday. Go Tigers!
