North High Tennis Players Qualify for States

Three tennis players from the North High girls varsity tennis team will compete at the New York State Championships, to be held Nov. 2–4 in Latham. Senior Amy Delman and juniors Alyssa Ghassabian and Alina Lyakhov qualified for the state tournament following their top performances at the Nassau County Championships at Eisenhower Park on Oct. 20.

These student athletes are no strangers to the State Championships; this will be Amy’s third time competing at the States, and the second time for Alyssa and Alina. Amy will compete in the singles tournament, and Alyssa and Alina are partners in the doubles tournament.

Amy is a three-time All-State tennis player and a three-time All-County player. Both Alina and Alyssa are two-time All-State tennis players and three-time All-County players.

The North High Girls Varsity Tennis Team is led by coaches Michael Kazin and Mindy Alpert.
