In a rare feat for Sachem North, girls tennis player Samantha Pedneault advanced to the quarterfinal round in the Division 3 Suffolk Tennis Tournament, held in Mt. Sinai on Saturday.
According to Coach Larry Saposnick, Pedneault defeated the number 3 ranked singles player out of Patchogue-Medford and then went on to defeat the number 2 singles player from Comsewogue, both in two sets to earn the advance.
Pedneault was matched up against the number 1 seed yesterday afternoon, but lost in two sets, 6-1, 6-1. Still, reaching the quarterfinals made a little bit of history, according to Coach Saposnick.
"Sam Pedneault is the first girl in my nine years coaching from Sachem North to advance to the quarterfinals," he said.
