Brittany Burke and

Hannah Eilbeck

go to State Finals

For the eighth year in a row, Garden City was represented at the State Tennis Tournament in Albany. The doubles team of Brittany Burke and Hannah Eilbeck finished third at the Nassau County Tennis Championships held at Eisenhower Park last month, earning the duo a spot in the State Finals.

Upon entering the Nassau County tournament, Burke and Eilbeck were seeded second overall in the single elimination tournament. This seeding earned them a first round bye. Round two was a 10-game pro-set against a team from Carey which they won comfortably at 10-2. Round three pitted the girls against conference rivals Lai and Hwang from Great Neck South. Burke and Eilbeck really started to play their best tennis, reading the other team’s every move and attacking the ball early in the point. They defeated them 6-2, 6-0. In the quarter finals, the ladies were up against another conference foe: Roslyn. Once again, Garden City brought their A-Game and defeated Roslyn, 6-1, 6-0, putting them in the semi-finals on Sunday.
