The Northeastern Conference released its annual boys and girls tennis all stars and a pair of locals took home the highest of honors.
On the boys side, Peabody’s first singles’ standout Alex Nadeau was named the South Division Player of the Year; for the girls, Marblehead’s Michelle Shub grabbed the same award. Shub finished unbeaten in league matches while Nadeau made the leap from second to first singles and didn’t miss a beat this spring.
Making the cut as all-conference selections included Marblehead’s Shub and second singles standout Hannah Porath, as well as Swampscott’s Georgia Cilley. Marblehead also nabbed both all-conference doubles selections, as the duos of Simone Likterov/Cannan Whittier and Cahill Whittier/Tess Keaney.
On the boys side, second-year standout and second singles star Paul Neal of Peabody joined Nadeau on the all-conference squad, while Marblehead’s Adam Sherf was named to the team at third singles. Once again, Marblehead’s doubles tandems of Vittorio Mariotti/Erik Stammnitz and Tony Gluskin/Jack Qugiley rounded out the all-conference selections.
