Overview

Tennis- Varsity

Tennis is one of the most competitive sports in the Independent School League. Many teams field players with New England USTA rankings. The ISL is frequently well represented in the New England championship tournament sponsored by the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). In fact, there have been years, such as 2007, when ISL schools have won NEPSAC titles in all three divisions—Class A, Class B, and Class C.

St. Sebastian’s is proud to be part of such a robust tradition. Many St. Sebastian’s graduates have gone on to play at the collegiate level. The team has sent graduates to play at schools such as Boston College, University of Massachusetts, Holy Cross, Connecticut College, and others.

In the fall of 2001 St. Sebastian’s completed construction of arguably one of the top outdoor tennis facilities in the ISL. Five courts sit parallel to the Charles River overlooked by a sixth, the ‘championship court’ dedicated to the memory of former player and team captain Kevin Ghelli '91. The courts were resurfaced in the summer of 2013.

In 2012 the team was a Class B semi-finalist in the New England Interscholastic Tennis Association (NEITA) tournament, losing to the eventual winner. After the season Connor Haughey '12 continued his playing career at Harvard.

The Arrows Varsity Tennis team is currently coached by Brian Richter. Coach Richter played USTA tournaments in his youth and went on to play singles and doubles at The University of the South.
